Another short story

This one seems to have won some kind of award, and while it's interesting fiction I don't think it's any better then anything I've read in a while. Maybe that just means I read a lot of good stuff?

So this one is set in a future that feels like the past where every adult dreams about the future, and the further ahead you dream the more you are both valued and ostracized. The young protagonist is just on the edge of adulthood and dances between childish joy at the return
What I love the most about Marissa Lingen's style is that she always has the right voice for her narrators. It's as though someone is reading aloud from their journal, or reminiscing about an interesting time in their childhood, rather than simply existing as words on a page. Every story she writes, no matter what the setting, is completely unique unto itself.
