UGH, I want more! I thought the story was 25-pages long so I was pretty shocked and pissed that it actually ended at page 15 and that the rest were previews to another novel. I want this short story to be a full-length novel. They will see each other again, sparks will fly again. It would be a great prologue to a novel. I hope that's actually Kimberly Russell's plan because this can certainly be a novel. I initially rated it a three out of five stars but I think my initial irritation (due to the ...more

This was a solid short story, exactly the right length, and it kept me thinking beyond its pages. At first I wanted to give it 3 stars because I thought the way she was exploring her impulses and breaking rules was a little cliched, and perhaps would result in unhealthy behavior. But on my second read I noticed that it was handled in a very thoughtful way, and the mother/daughter relationship was so interesting it definitely merits 4 stars.

Too quick Kimberly ;). This can definitely make a novel...I love your writing style though :). I'd love to hear about all the other wacky things her mom makes her do too. I'm just sayin....

This story was so short but I think it has a good message: we all need to let loose once in a while and do something that might seem out of character. It helps us grow.

Book # 38 for 2014

It's not a book... It's a chapter. :-)

Despite this being very, very short, I still liked it.

It gave a glimpse of Colbie's life and I think it was a very defining moment too. Alice was a hoot and a half.

I hope this turns into a full on book, I'd definitely read it. I feel like her life changes drastically from that moment on. :-)

Hello! I have written three novels - BETWEEN BALLOONS, THE ADORATION OF EMMA WYLDE, and THE TRUTH ABOUT LILLY BARNES. I am currently working on my fourth novel, MONA LOSER.
I’m obsessed with all things Jane Austen. I read a lot of YA but my all-time favorite is a cozy mystery. As far as teen books go I really love Stephanie Perkins, Sarah Dessen, Sara Zara, and Ann Brashares. As far as adult books
