Spoiler-tastic Review

Here’s a short review for a short story.

Two teenagers, one boy and one girl, are having trouble with family/friends and go escape to the beach for some time to themselves. While there they encounter a ‘stranded’ mermaid. But does the mermaid really need their help, or perhaps is it there to kidnap the boy to use as a sperm donor…

Yeah, it was short and fun. I liked it. Check it out. I listened to LeVar Burton reading this, and as always he does an excellent job.
