Thanks for creating the discussion, Anetq!

Here is the link to the pdf-file of this winning short story by Makena Onjerika.

Will we also read the other stories of the short list this month?

Do you want them all to go there, or create a thread for each story?

I read it, and was impressed by the effect created by the clash between the naive voice telling the story and the harsh realities of street life. Really gets the point across.

George P. | 210 comments That was a really grim little story! It was very well-written though, and we should not forget that there are people for whom life is rather terrible.
