These stories were extremely fun – I liked how they were all based off of true stories however they felt a bit underdeveloped.
The language was straightforward and some of the stories were so short that they didn’t leave me with much of an impression.
The longer ones sometimes had a bit of a cardboard feel – they stated the facts but not the emotions you’d expect from such endearing stories.
I was given a free copy from the author in exchange for a honest review.
