Poe is about to learn death and time are fragile barriers—if he has the strength of will to let go.
Poe passes through a graffiti-laden alley, his chin tucked into his chest, a scarf wrapped tightly over his mouth to keep out the cold. He has nowhere to go since Isaac’s death, but something compels him out in the frigid Chicago winter.
He steps out of the alley, off the curb, and…into sand. In summertime. Isaac told him it would happen but Poe doesn’t care how it’s possible, only that now he has a chance to make everything right.
I can’t really sum this up without giving up the entire story. So … let me tell you that this is a very short, but profound story about two kids who grow up as best friends, find one another later in life and after way too much time admit what the other means to each other.
There’s a touch of the supernatural and mystery thrown in, some regret, growth, and pain, but in the end a truly beautiful happy ending that will leave you wanting more.
It’s a quick read, but it will stick with you. SA McAuley is a new author to me, but I one I’m going to definitely look into for further reads.
