A to Z April Challenge 2013 ~ B ~ The Butterfly Effect by Scott Semegran

A father watches his daughters lovingly care for a squirmy gang of caterpillars. When they morph into butterflies, the girls witness the true meaning of life... unfortunately. A short story by Scott Semegran

My Review:

So I picked this one up a while back when it was a freebie on Amazon.  It’s a short, quick read, but it is a nice glimpse into everyday life and the authors writing.  Even though it was short I found myself smiling and even laughing a few times at some of the character and his daughters’ antics.  I think I mainly enjoyed it so much simply because it was just real.  I found myself nodding my head at some of the things the girls would do because my own daughters would do the same things.   Even the ending, while not the happiest of ones, was funny in its own kind of twisted way.
I could see this story being set in a larger one, or being grouped in an anthology.   I liked Semegran’s writing and would definitely enjoy reading more of his work.
