This is actually a really good short story. It also helps some when transitioning into the book "Impulse", it gives you some background as to why Cent's parents do what they do.

However, I really do wish that there was more to this story. For me, it was way way way too short and I needed more. But like I said, it does help transition into Impulse. ( )
