If you received a fortune cookie that said you were going to die, what would you do? Unlucky Sarah goes on a hunt to find out who gave her the fortune and why. What she discovers will change her forever.This is a short story of 11,000 words that I devoured in the space of an hour. I loved the premise that the main character, Sarah, received a death threat in a fortune cookie. However, the little bit I found weird was the whole bit about their being an extra day every 3000 years that created a December the 32nd. I wasn't sure why the author needed to do this as it held no real relevance to the story. The fortune could have read any day and it would have been just as creepy.
I sympathized very much with Sarah who is not a terribly social animal and stuck in a group of friends, dragged their by a best friend who just wants to be popular, where she is the butt of their jokes, lead by the a-typical mean girl and her toadie yes man. Razel was instantly unlikable - which was I suppose the point - and although nothing in the story made me want to put it down, it was very easy to discern where it was going, but with only 11,000 words I knew it wasn't going far anyway.
With a couple of continuity errors, I knock a star off. A writer really should be able to get her characters name correct throughout such a short piece.
