Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Too often, short stories are used as teaser for a full size story and thus end with huge cliffhangers. I'm happy to say this one is not one of these. Not only it has a full arc but it's also masterfully narrated from the first person POV of Dallas.
While the subject of autism is serious, Mr. Fry found a way to keep it light, adding a hint of humor without being disrespectful. He manages to make you smile and feel compassion all at once. I never thought it could be possible to get so much out of such a short story. Thirty-four pages isn't long but by the end of the book, Dallas and Austin, his autistic brother, feel as alive as if they were your neighbors.
If you're looking for a short read, you should definitely give this one a try.
If you're looking for a quick read, you should give this one a go.
I found the story both engaging and very easy to read. It is also very well-written and left me yearning for more of their story. That in my opinion is how you know a good book.
