Short Story Rec: Nine by Aryn Kyle

I forgot how much I loved the short story “Nine” by Aryn Kyle. I’m reading her novel, the God of Animals, and was reminded of the first piece of hers I’d read. It blew me away when I first read it and again when I reread it today.

Go read it. It’ll bring you back to fourth grade and remind you how overwhelming and scary being nine years old can be.
