Review: Disconnected by Jennifer Weiner

Goodreads:  Shannon Will is twenty-eight and has made six trips to rehab (not that anyone's counting). But this time, she swears, will be different. She'll clean up her act, go to meetings, find a sponsor, and make a clean break with her past—starting with a new phone number.

But old ties aren't so easy to sever. When Shannon's new phone starts getting messages she was never meant to see, Shannon has to decide whether to risk getting involved, or stay safely disconnected.

Kritters Thoughts:  Every so often it is nice to sit and read a short story and just enjoy a full story in one sitting!  It is also awesome when that story comes from an author that I know that I will love!

Jennifer Weiner is known for fantastic "women's fiction" and this short story had a great suspenseful twist at the end!  Of course I will not spoil!  

Shannon is an addict who can't find the motivation to quite her ways and leave the friends who keep her in the dark place of addiction.  So as she finally turns over a new leaf and gets a new phone with a new number to disconnect her from her previous ways, she starts getting weird text messages and must make a big decision.

As short stories must have, it was easy to get to know this main character and want to know what her short journey would be.  Also, the conclusion was awesome - I was sad to see it end, but wouldn't mind a full novel based on this character.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel (or full novel!)
