Today's author is moomin98, who was supposed to be recognized quite a long time ago. I am quite sure I had published a chapter on her but... now it isn't there! ...XD So I am writing a new one.


Moomin98 has been a member of Movellas since Valentine's Day (the 14th of February). She is a 14-year-old girl and here's how she describes herself:

'"Quiet? Most definitely. In no way do I have less to say." Hey, my name's Alannah. Hmm... not sure what to talk about now. I guess I enjoy music, art, running and reading. I play flute, piano and the Steel Pans, and I draw... stuff.
Poetry is my favourite kind of literature- I'd be grateful if you could check mine out. :D
Er. Yeah. I like books too. In fact, my house is laced with them- kind of like a death trap. A nice death trap, though. My favourites that I reccomend you read are: Catch-22, Pride and Prejudice, Anne of Green Gables, A Song for Summer, Un-Lun-Dun, The Book Theif, 1984 and Wuthering Heights. Phew.

I am reviewing  her very first movella out of 17, called "Just a Silly Little Girl". The reason I first read this was because of the title. It has an old-looking gravestone on it. Serious business, huh? Well, the story itself isn't quite happy, either. It is consisted of only one chapter; it is a letter, sent from a daughter to her mother. Okay, I will try my best not to spoil the whole thing.

There is the narrator who is female. On the last day of school, she leaves home for her perfect boyfriend's house. It is all bright and wonderful until then. She leaves her boyfriend -- Henry -- at his house, as he declares he has a headache, and goes shopping. When she comes back, out of pure curiosity or just in a playful manner, she "makes the worst decision of her life"-- she opens Henry's door and steps inside. She immediately is filled with horror and dread. How can he do this to her? He just can't do this. Henry's lifeless body is soon left under the stairs as the narrator now fills with regret. This letter, after all, was her last letter ever.

Well, I tried not to spoil it. Please go read it to enjoy Alannah's beautiful use of words and to... find out what filled the narrator with horror that much!
