Names for Water
When I finished this story, I literally had chills that went up and down my spine. Not because it was a creepy story, but it truly moved me. It was a very mysterious and captivating story.
This is the a story of a moment in a young woman’s life. A seemingly meaningless phone call that eventually turns out to be a foreshadowing of the future of her life and the world as well. Hala, the girl, is late for class but takes a phone call on her cell from an unknown caller. For such a short story, there was just so much there. I couldn’t wait to find out who called, what it meant, and how was Hala going to respond.
If you get this book and only read one of the short stories inside, read this one. I’m surprised just how much I liked it.
