Short Story Review: The Black Sheep by Julie Cohen

Lee and Liza are identical twins.  However, that is where the similarities end.  One is good, one isn’t…

As Christmas in the town of Stoneguard approaches, all of the young children are forced to participate in the Christmas Pageant.  Whilst one of the twins is given a good role in the play, the other is told she has to play a sheep; a decision she is not happy about it.  But what lengths will she go to to show the town?

I really loved this short story.  I knew before starting it that it was going to be packed full of mischief and mayhem – and it didn’t disappoint.  It made me laugh and cringe and I just thought it was wonderful!  The characters were believable, especially the twins, and the story was engaging.  I can’t recommend it highly enough.

I will definitely be adding Getting Away With It, (the world in which this standalone story is set) to my to-be-read list.

If you want to read something quick, light and funny, something that will put a smile on your face, you should give this short story a go.

I downloaded The Black Sheep by Julie Cohen for free from Smashwords.
