Honestly Yez, this where-in-the-world offering was exceptional! I DID find it a bit eerie, knowing it wasn't a story at all, rather a memoir. However "they" explain it, deja voux is exciting when it happens to you. Reincarnation is something altogether stranger to comprehend.
But...the story, the movement through the eyes of the twelve year-old you, was the best part. I enjoyed reading this one immensely. My vote gladly:)
Review - You have a very direct style of writing and your voice comes through strong. This was a fascinating flashback of time. This could be weaved into such a fictional story! So many seeds in it. I would also be curious if you ever went back, what your feelings and impressions would be. You have captured my imagination with your story. Excellent job. Robynn
