Audible Version Brings This Story to Life
I first read this story when it was available as an e-book on Amazon. Now that there is an audio book for "You Can't Be Twelve Forever," it brings the story to life in a whole new way.

Haunting Little Story
Yes. "You Can't Be Twelve Forever" presents the reader with enough information to understand the world that the author has created, but leaving plenty unknown to draw you back in.
There is a detached quality. Like someone who has been so beaten down by the traumatic circumstances that they cannot get too worked up any more.
There were audible breaks in between takes. I think they could be covered up with a little more editing, or even a music backing.
