The tea on this story
***NO SPOILER ALERTS***
Kela successfully put together a short story filled with realistic trials and tribulations of three completely different characters who are close friends. Whether it’s relationship woes or our own deep rooted insecurities, this is a great read in which we can all relate in one way or another.
The way Kela put this book together was done perfectly for it to be such a quick read. She explained enough about the characters in order for the reader to understand what they’re going through, there was just enough drama to make your jaw drop, and there was a touch of humor that made this an even more enjoyable read.
If Kela were to extend this book into a complete novel or even make a sequel, I would be more than happy to read it. In fact, I wasn’t ready for the book to end. Not everyone is able to pull off a short story, but Kela did an amazing job!
