Victoria and Veronica live with their aunt and uncle in a fourth-floor walk-up located on the West Side of Cargo City. After a terrible storm blows in, the sisters find themselves trying to survive after a harrowing encounter that begins with their separation from their uncle. Their ordeal takes them into the urban center after they find a friend; once there they find so much more.
The Author/ AR Neal
Andreé Robinson-Neal got bit by the writing bug back in the late 1970s while watching Rod Serling and reading Ray Bradbury; although she has worked in education for more than a quarter-century, she has never been cured of her penchant for speculative fiction. Find some of her flash fiction at starvingactivist.com She writes under the name AR Neal, who will hopefully one day be identified as a famous NaNoWriMo participant.
A lot can happen in just a few days. In A.R Neal story she presents us with four rebellious teenage girls after a rain storm. Where she takes her characters, captures the reader and holds us steadfast on their journeys for independence and eventual disaster. When all hope is gone, it’s by God grace and parental love that brings this to a fitting conclusion. Could there be more adventures for this group of girls in Cargo City, I hope certainly so.
I give Adventures in Cargo City 3 out of 5 finger-snaps, simply because I would have loved to see more drama for those wayward teens.
A.R. is a freelance writer who has written for a number of online publications. She’s an activist that speaks out against abuse and shares her stories of survival in ways that help others to overcome. She’s a hero to so many, yet she doesn’t consider herself one.
A. R. contributes her strength of character to the host of people that have crossed her path as bright and shining lights if only for a moment-but lived their lives (and in some cases, given them) for causes worthy of our attention.
