If you've read The Twenty Dollar Bill, you'll recall that Hammes has a knack for taking a small snippet of a character's life and, in a few short words, allowing the reader to understand, at least to some extent, and care about that character. In this very short story, which takes only 15 minutes to read, Hammes introduces us to a young teenage boy who has a tumultuous life due to his alcoholic father. The story is told from the perspective of the boy who longs to escape his life, much like his brother was able to do. While he lacks the athletic abilities that propelled his older brother to football scholarship at a distant small college, the boy eventually discovers he does have three options for "escape" from his dilemma -- at least in the temporary, mental sense. If you've read Hammes' other work, this is a story worthy of the read.

Me encantó, realmente sentí lo que sentía el protagonista. Denle una oportunidad, que sea corto no significa que sea malo, todo lo contrario.
I loved it, I really felt what the protagonist felt. Give it a chance, that's short doesn't mean it's bad, quite the opposite.

Overview: 5 Stars

This work reads more like an essay than a short story. However, the delivery works well for the subject matter.

There is much, much more to this story than the word count. It is a deep characterization of a young teenage boy told by relating snapshots of his life.

Mr. Hammes excels at showing and hinting rather than straightforward statements of fact.

Editing: 5 Stars

The editing was of professional quality.

As it is clearly stated in the description this is a short story and not a novel. I will echo the sentiments from another review that although this story is short, it is very deep. The story is a character sketch of a teenage boy. Although it goes by quick, I felt a lot of empathy for this boy. I cared about him as a character and I wouldn't mind reading more about him. This is a profound story that is full of meaning - I actually read it twice in a row. I'm looking forward to the next story or novel from Mr. Hammes.
