Two Short Stories

Thicker Than Water by Clink Roslam

Genre: Contemporary Short Story
Source: I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

This was a great short story. The life of two boys, brothers take different paths as they grow up. One is constantly in some form of trouble. He fights at school and at home to protect his younger brother. After spending a little over a year in rehab for a heroin addiction, the older brother returns.  His first stop is to see his mother. His second stop is at the secret spot only he and his younger brother share. But, as the younger brother discovers, sometimes things go too deep to be repaired.  He accepts this as easily as he breathes.  This story is woven together nicely and is one I love for the emotions it brings to the surface.  I would read many more short stories by this author and hope to see more from him.
