Roma Gray is a great short story writer. She really has mastered the fine art of telling a tale that holds your attention, has a beginning, middle, and end and yet is briefly told.
Here we start out with a group of boys who sneak off to investigate a suspicious section of woods. While there they find far more than they expected. What comes afte the discovery drives the title of the story, and you come to learn that this isn't the first or the last time the discovery will be made. What matters is that no one knows where they had gone, and you have to wonder if anyone ever will with the way it ends.
Terry Self slams the story home, and I think he and Roma are a good match for one another. He is definitely a real vocal talant, and should be commended for his work. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

For a short audio, this was thoroughly enjoyable. It reminded me of my own childhood – although I didn’t have quite so many rules as these boys. I remember the sense of wonder and curiosity that drove me to play made-up games with my friends.
We lived in a new suburb, but I remember reading ‘Anne of Green Gables’ and wanting to go into our attic. My mother informed me I couldn’t because it was just pink insulation. I still remember my devastation that it wasn’t full of dust, old furniture, and family memorabilia.
If there had been an old house through the thicket? Jennifer Mercer would have dared me to go and I just might have.
I have to say, what goes on in the mysterious house in ‘No One Knows We’re Here’ is spooky, creative, and scary. The moment the boys realize no one knows where they are is horrific for them.
The final scene made me smile because I hadn’t seen it coming.
The narrator, Terry F. Self, has a deep voice, but did a good job portraying the young boys, differentiating each of them. Roma Gray crafted a lovely story, great for young and old.
I enjoyed it and I would definitely and voraciously attack the next one.
