This story is beautiful in the way that it slows down in the moments between characters, highlighting just the right details about their body language, their appearance, and the setting they inhabit. The language used throughout is lively, energetic. The emotional weight of the story is allowed room to breathe through an excellent use of understatement. The author allows readers to decide for themselves how much of what to feel. I enjoyed this story very much and will look for Kara Levy's work in the future.
