What the hell is this? There is no "edge" to this story, there is no connection with the characters, no emotion. No real plot other than boys chasing one boy wanting to kill him, and a girl chasing him wanting to fuck him. And that ending? Was that supposed to be the "edge"? That ending is nothing but a sudden cut-off in the middle of the story.

This wasn't a novelette, this wasn't a story, this was an utter and complete waste of time and money. Do not read unless you're looking to get pissed off

WTF Thats what first comes to mind after reading this book second thing that comes to mind is why did I ever bother to read it. OMG the worst novella I have ever read. Save your money and don't buy this book.
Very confusing ! I don't understand the ending.. Is it incomplete? the relationship was awkward and too fast unrealistic.
Great story, interesting characters, but boy! did the ending throw me for a loop! I totally recommend this short story.
One of the weirdest short stories I have ever read with the most bizarre ending.
Is it just me or did this book not have a proper ending?
