A review by kurtliske
Foster by Claire Keegan


I was told this was a story where "not much happens, but it's still really good." Definitely agree. Claire Keegan seems to make each sentence do work. There is little filler here, each line carries water and adds the story. She has a remarkable way of making the mundane suspenseful. The ending is exactly what you knew it would be, and yet Keegan still manages to find away to make it gut-wrenching. An excellent example of strong writing. Of the economy of words.
