Chapter 1: It's Fine, Mom
Chapter 1 – Great character development with good dialogue that sets up the rest of the story and builds suspense. I enjoyed the gentle interactions, work dialogue, talking about the shrinking method, the actual shrinking scene itself, and the cliff-hanger ending that makes us want to keep reading.Author's Response:
Chapter 2 – We learn more about their relationship. Good, detailed conversations that establish their rapport. We know shrinking is coming and we have an idea of how, so it is building. She is feeling desperate and wants to keep him, so her personality is starting to shift.
Chapter 3 – It seems that she is ready, willing, and able to justify her shrinking of him if that is the goal without a plot twist. I have a feeling that his response will not be as loving as she believes. The idea for the mother-son weekend is presented and accepted. It makes sense that she would want to know the risks involved and all information on shrinking that she can get while looking for another person to give her advice in her hurt emotional state. I enjoyed her imagining how tiny he would be in her hand.
