it was amazing
bookshelves: mystery, 5-stars, fiction

Short, but so powerful and thought-provoking. A must read IMO!

The entire book is written in verse and covers the time span of 60 seconds, all starting with an elevator ride.
Who gets on, and more importantly who gets off, is what makes this read so powerful.

Storytelling at it's best!!

Christine Wow, talk about a unique concept. Over 300 pages to cover an elevator ride? This must be one brilliant author!

My book wasn't 300 pages so not sure why it says that. And sometimes one page would just have a few verses. I read this in a matter of a couple hours. It's really unique, a definite stand out! ❤️

Just seeing this now, sorry. I'd say it's more like a novella!
