It looked like Julie's summer was going to end on a romantic note!
In a Nutshell
Sandra goes to the carnival with two couples. A handsome dude rear-ends her on the bumper cars. Later they ride a roller coaster together. The ferris wheel is their last ride...or is it?
The carnival is the type of setting that Woman's World loves. It can be romantic and it has that old-timey Americana feel to it.
Sandra skated the line for me because she started out so negative. Five paragraphs of a bummer attitude. But then, in the sixth paragraph, Sandra turned herself around. If I were a beginning writer, I'd be wary of doing this type of thing in a Woman's World story. They aren't keen on negativity.
This was an average story for me, nothing particularly special made it stand out.
