Grace is just the typical mum - overprotective at times and yet supportive of what's really best at all times. Yet, would his focus and persistence to reach his game goals really pay off? What is there to find?
* slightly biased review I’m a new friend of the author and I thought I’d read some of her work. It’s really good! I love how even though the story is short, there was a character arc and hints of backstory that made me want to know more. Well written and enjoyable. I look forward to reading more of Renee Conoulty’s work.
A sweet short story about a mother and son going out into their local community to play Pokemon GO and befriending a stranger. Very well written and the characters are very easy to relate to. It made me want to go out and play the game.
I have made it one of my reading goals this year to reach out not only to new authors but also challenge myself to a wider variety of genres. There is no better way I think than by downloading short stories, considering that I love to make the most of my time when I have to stand in line, wait for an appointment or ... like today sitting down for my lunch break. 'Catching Onix' was a lovely story, managing to pack in a lot in just a few pages with lively dialogue and likable characters. Perfect short read!
