Each story took a few pages to tell but were so full of emotion that my thoughts and imagination made the stories so much longer. The first one definitely made me smile, the second one made me sad, then hopeful, and the third one was probably my favorite and made me feel content and the bonus story at the end made me laugh out loud, once I realized what I was reading I had to read it again to fully appreciate it.
Great book, I loved it! Dec 04, Anna Hirsch rated it really liked it. Although they are really short, they are well written.
