    Fireflies seem to dance on sheer air, illuminating the space between heartbeats. Children give off a similar brave glow, despite the challenges of their young lives. The lessons of childhood are often painful, the shedding of fragile wings in the gloam of an uncertain future. These rich novellas are small jewels reflecting the essence of what it means to grow up dancing among the shadows of life, carrying a brave, small beacon because you know that even the brightest days always, always, end in darkness.

    Story
    Which character – as performed by Frances Fuller – was your favorite?

    Petey was my favorite character and I think the narrator connected to her as well. These stories are presented as "growing up" tales but the themes are universal and already grown up. I really enjoyed the stories and the narration.

    It is bizarre to say in our civilized culture that some human beings still act out in a violent, primitive manner causing bodily harm and death. For this reason alone, incarcerating facilities will always exist. The terror of being thrust into a world in which time cannot be calculated, distance cannot be measured, and our own true existence is in question is incomprehensible. In 1971, a mysterious stranger warned a small community of their impending doom. She prophesied that if they ignored her warnings they would experience a chain of devastating events.

    Story

    This story gives you the creeps because it is something very disturbing, but at the same time it is something that could really happen. We sometimes forget that sociopaths live among us in normal society and are capable of horrible things. Also, Frances Fuller's narration really adds to the experience. Her soothing voice makes it even more eerie! She also has a way of conveying the emotional attitude of the characters without overdoing it. A great read overall.
