Short Story Saturday: Defy the Dark, Sleepstalk
Author: Courtney Summers
Summary: Despite the fact she's been told to stay away, one night a girl absentmindedly walks to Jed's house, discovers he's a sleepwalker, and makes a habit of following him on his nighttime strolls for several nights after, desperate to be acknowledged by her ex.
Thoughts: I've never read any of Summers' novels, but she has a reputation for writing about the grittier side of life. That is very much showcased here in a story of obsessive love and a girl who was both wronged by the boy she loved, but who also cannot let go. While the end left me a bit turned around plot-wise, I did enjoy that this story kept me on my toes.
