Bridge (Shade, #2.5)Bridge by Jeri Smith-Ready

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I picked this up as a quick filler read to get a feel for Ms. Smith-Ready’s style and was completely sucked in by her artistry. Without giving too much away, seeing as how this is a short story and uncovering the story nuances are half the experience, Bridge is a short story in the larger Shade universe about setting things right and not giving up on the people who matter. It’s written song-style, as if it should be sung or read aloud to be fully enjoyed, which is something I’ve never seen before in this genre of literature (which, loosely, would be Young Adult edging toward New Adult) and it leaves behind a lingering poignancy and melancholia. I’m not usually one for ghost stories but I’m fairly certain I’ll be seeing more of the Keeley Brothers in my TBR pile. Even if you don’t normally enjoy YA (and I am right there with you!), give this a try and I bet you’ll agree.
