A wonderfully haunting short story, Meredith Skye’s The Fractured Boy vividly juxtaposes two worlds—a past or future land of peace and serenity, and a present-day concrete jungle—placing them both in the same place and time, while a young boy hovers between them. As worlds fade nearer and further from his senses, the fractured boy struggles to decide where he is and where he wants to be. The author portrays the confusion, of boy and people around him, with a lovely sense of both alien and ordinary, making this a delightfully intriguing short story, captivating from start to finish.
