Oh crap. The retreat.
Kayla clears her throat in a vain attempt to make me feel guilty. She’s bummed that I refused to go to some lame youth retreat with her this weekend. My mother and my new step-father, Bob, are also disappointed. They were about to be outdone in their disappointment by this over-zealous Jesus-freak.
–On The Outward Appearance, a YA Fantasy Short Story by D. Marie Prokop
On The Outward Appearance takes a brave and uncomfortable look at the human heart.
Please leave a review so others can discover this introspective tale that stares cynicism in the face and ponders the conclusion that good and bad aren’t as simple as they look.
Thankfully, neither is love.
