Hiya.

I write stories for middle school souls, who deserve better than a culture of hopelessness and indulgence. Browse the blog, Sheepgate, where I give that culture a piece of my mind. TTFN, Emily

2.5 Stars

Story Feels: mild interest, slight worry

Story Strengths: hook, plot, world building, integrating a liturgical church into an imagined world

Story Goofs: writing tells rather than shows, over explaining, supporting characters lack dimension, action does not drive the story

Story Morals: fractured church, why does God choose to bestow more gifts on some?, mental illness, PTSD, how much knowledge is too much knowledge?
