“Though we were four years younger than Ariya, we’d watched teenagers before at an older cousin’s house. They talked on the phone, they texted their boyfriends, they watched movies on DVDs. Sometimes, they tidied up the house by wiping the table with a damp sponge after feeding us, removing the crumbs and ring spots from the bottom of our glasses. But we’d never seen any of them work like Ariya did.”
Twin sisters. Stepdaughters. Neighbours. In this short fiction, the lives of the twins are forever changed when their mother remarries and they move next door to a family unlike their own. Could their lives have been different with a flip of a coin?
Someone Else, Somewhere Else was a cute but very short story. I really wish it would have kept going and turned into a full story. I needed more of these two twin girls story. I really wanted to get to know the characters more and to see what they thought about what they had found out!
I really did like the writing style and the stories plot. There was a few things I didn't particularly like but they were small enough to not take away from me liking and getting into the story. One being the things I read going on in the book seemed like a blast from the past, but then in some parts it was very modern day to me. It just seemed to mixed up in places.
I really wouldn't mind if the author would have continued the story, like I said before I needed more to it. All in all its a great short story.
