This short story is sad and haunting. A little girl sings songs that bring the dead back. They come as dust figures and leave their mark all over the apartment that she lives in with her mother. The mother knows that the little girl can’t help this and has lived with it as best as she can. But, the mother is sick and prepares herself to die all while making preparations for her daughter to not call her back from the dead.
While the story is short, it is full of heartbreak, sadness, and haunting words. It left a chill that I cannot shake and images I cannot erase in my mind. While this kind of story is not for everyone, it is the type that linger with the reader for a long, long, time. Job well done, Dora Badger.
