Chilling, thrilling and pitch perfect, will you take Jennifer Wylie's hand and be led into a supernatural game? It's not all child's-play in 'Ring Around the Rosie', a deliciously dark tale that delivers consistently from the excellent writing throughout to the final note. A highly recommended read.

Ring around the rosie, pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes, we all fall down. What if weren't about something deadly but something magical? Aaron is part of a musical family and even he is surprised when he hears music coming from the woods. He must investigate.

This short story gives us an alternative to the meaning we've all associated with this song. I like that there is something else behind this song. So many children love it, it's nice to see it can be interpreted another way. I like this short story. I wish it was a full length book. How much fun it would be to get tangled in it then.

I didn't find any issues.

I gave this one 5 out of 5 books even though I wished it were longer.

In this short story Jen Wylie has managed to preserve the feeling of a fairy tale / nursery rhyme with her use of simple, yet effective, prose. She juxtaposes this successfully with a modern setting and characters leaving an intriguing contemporary feel with the reader at the story's end.
In common with some of Grimm's tales this one has a sweet innocent beginning, but like a thriller film score the tune that it weaves becomes darker as it continues until... well, you'll just have to read it.
For me the main appeal was a likable and interesting main character, and the 'feel' of the piece which Ms. Wylie's writing evoked so well.

"Ring Around the Rosie" as a child's rhyme always made me nervous, and although I've pushed it out of my mind, now I remember why. In a story that lures the reader in and wraps you with warmth, there's a constantly lingering uncertainty that all isn't what it seems.

"Ring Around the Rosie" by Jen Wylie is a short story (only about twenty pages) that gives the reader insight on the popular children’s song. The story follows Aaron, a young teen raised to love music. During summer break, he walks to his flute lessons and every day passes the park. One day while passing he hears a haunting tune. After a few days of hearing, curiosity gets the better of him and he ventures into the woods next to the park to find the source of the mysterious tune. He finds Shay, a strange boy who plays the pipes for children in the park. Aaron likes that he shares his passion of music with Shay and begins meeting him every day to play. On a “special day” though, Aaron learns the hard way that it’s not all fun and games with Shay.

So this is a very short, yet haunting tale. I like Aaron, he is an atypical high school student. He has a love for music, he’s a good big brother and son. However, against his better judgment he begins these jam sessions with the mysterious Shay. Shay talks with an older cadence than his body shows. In fact he exudes a high creep factor, yet Aaron finds himself inexplicably drawn to him, as do other children in the park.

Overall, if you are looking for a quick read for your busy weekend, I highly suggest this one. It’s short enough to be read in one sitting, I read it in under an hour. And bonus it’s free for a limited time :D Just be warned, it does not leave you with good feelings!! In fact, pretty sure I had a nightmare or two the night I read this.

Interesting take on the age old children's rhyme. I enjoyed this version very much. Novella, easy and quick reading. Well written and a fresh idea.

It's a very interesting short story. I wish it were longer because I would like to know more. It's unique and loved reading another version of Ring Around the Rosie.

I love Wylie's works and this is no exception. It was cute and fun and very enjoyable. Leaves you wondering what happens next. Will be reading to my children for bedtime and then have them read it to me.
