In the Woods
In The Woods - Jessica Mallory,Thomas Washburn Jr

by Thomas Washburn Jr

 

Three children, Travis, Timmy and Abby, find a cave in the woods and make it their secret clubhouse. Though they are close friends, approaching puberty introduces complications, especially after Abby gets her first boyfriend.

 

This started out like a sweet story of childhood friends coming of age. Then one day Travis finds a secret door and things go horribly wrong.

 

This was a short story that could have been developed into something more interesting. As it was, it became tacky and cliché without even an end twist to recommend it. The writing itself was good but there was a lack of plotting or explanation and in the end, it seemed like someone's first efforts.

 

The quality of writing gets it an extra star.

Into the Dark, Dark Woods Square
In The Woods - Jessica Mallory,Thomas Washburn Jr

This one wasn't even out of the freebie slush pile, but was found with a keyword search. It's a short one and the premise sounded good, then the square got called today so I started reading.

 

Not riveting literature that will change my life, but it will do.
