    This was a nice follow up to Summer of ‘69. It gave just enough insight to how the characters had evolved in ten years.

    I fell in love with every character in Summer of 69’ so I was really worried that this short story would have a hard time living up to carrying on their stories, especially with a decade gap. Hilderbrand keeps the mystery alive and utilizes the undocumented time to her advantage. Nothing about this story was disappointing. Anxiously awaiting more.
