Review: Incendiary Girls: Stories by Kodi Scheer TLC Book Tour


Incendiary Girls by Kodi Scheer is a collection of short stories, however, these are not your average short stories. Each one has elements that are fantastical and unsettling with a story line that is depicted in detailed. In other words, this is a nontraditional and surreal collection that is based in realism or should I say magical realism.  If you like the work of Gabriel Garcia Marquez then Incendiary Girls should be right up your alley.  

The first story in the collection is entitled "Fundamental Laws of Nature" and boy does it start off with a bang "Ellen is convinced her daughter's lesson horse is the reincarnation of her mother.  The horse's eyes give her away.  And her mother always loved anything equine.  Fitting that she's now a black thoroughbred mare."  Wow, you know starting off like this that things can only get weirder, and they do  This is just one of the many unusual circumstances Ms. Scheer creates.  I'm a big fan of the short story genre and this debut collection is one that you simply can't put down because the author's  mature command over each and every tale makes each one a delight to read.   

I'd like to thank TLC Book Tours, New Harvest Publishing, and the author, Kodi Scheer for the opportunity to review this book.
