Stuck by Lissette E. Manning
A world too different from what we once knew . . . all we hold onto now is survival.
Memories of the dead remind Annie Page of the world she'd once known. Renegade forces are closing in, seeking to command the little that remains. Yet she refuses to stand by and watch the world crumble.
Her children’s love the driving force behind the choices that she’s made, she’s determined to make their world a better place. Yet their survival comes with a price – one that she never meant to pay.
Stuck was a great short novella about a woman trying to provide for her children in an apocalyptic setting. At seventeen pages, it was a quick read. The ending made me sad. It would be horrible to have that happen and not be able to tell anyone. I thought it was definitely worth the time it took to read it. I wish the novella would have been a little longer. I would have liked to know more about Annie's children. I would have also liked to know more about the post apocalyptic world. In the ending of the book, there was a preview for Haunted, the author's newest novel. It sounds really good and I can't wait to read it. I recommend this book for people to read during a bus ride, or some other short trip.
I give Stuck: 4/5.
