It was a pleasant experience. I liked how the reader was presented with information about the characters, very gradually. So the prose kept me interested.
I did think it should be longer, but since the author had a character limit then some parts should have been edited or even removed to include more suspense. Throughout the story I kept hoping something exciting would happen, both (view spoiler)[with the convenience store owner and the cop. I also wish we were told specifically why Aaron ripped out the radio (hide spoiler)]
