The voice in this haunting story is outstanding and I can see why it won the Prolitzer Prize. We are fuelled with empathy at the beginning, only to be left stunned by the end and in battle with our conscience. Superb!

What character and plot development packed into a wonderfully creepy little short story! We get to know all we need to know about this strange charming sad little girl and how she copes with her demons. A prize winner for sure.

It is very, very difficult to write from the voice of a child and bring so much of the adult into the picture. I got chills with the ending.
