Between the Quiet
By Candace Robinson
If you’ve followed my book reviews for a while, you’ve probably noticed a number of Candace’s stories on my reading list. I love her mixture of horror or spookiness with lighter storylines. This short story was no exception!
Tuesday is a high schooler who likes to stand on the street corner on Saturdays and be a mime for tips with her best friend Francis. I really loved how Candace digs into the history of mining and shares famous mimes–who do come into play later in the story.
I don’t want to say too much for fear of spoiling things, but it has some major Christmas Carol vibes but with a twist! It’s such a perfect blending of dark and sweet, and I absolutely can’t recommend this story enough!
A sweet holiday story with a beautifully gothic twist.
My rating: 5/5 thumbs up
