Information about the author
Some of the other reviews are pointing out that this is short even for a short story. This piece was written originally for a community themed contest that required the entire piece to consist of only a single page. It also had to highlight a community working together for the greater good. Working with those constraints I would say she has done this beautifully. In one page she is able to tell the entire story without excessive details.
What's more impressive is when writing this, she was only 11 years old. To write with such understanding and depth at such a young age is phenomenal.
