    We Need To Do Something is my first read by author Max Booth III; I bought this and Touch The Night as happy birthday gifts for me, and a nod to his birthday being in July too. He has been on my radar to read for a while, but my library doesn’t carry him (lame) and I had to wait for that sweet sweet B-day money to get any of his work. These were suggested by him, several times on Twitter, as we all asked what titles to buy in celebration for his birthday without bothering to look at his previous feed at all; he was polite to everyone, a class act. I am now on a quest to read all of his work, because this novella floored me.

    This got 5 stars, of course, see above praise.

    I actually posted Twitter updates while reading because I was reacting like a tween watching her first jump scare movie. The summary in no way prepares you; a family gathers in the bathroom during a tornado warning, tensions rise. I mean, I am not going to prepare you either, this is something you are going to have to do or die on you own, but that completely undersells the experience you are about to undertake. And I think that was absolute genius on the part of whoever made that final decision. This novella is less than 200 pages, but the story was like a cyclone whirling around in my mind.

    Simply put, I am in awe of this novella. You should read it. This is my top favorite novella of the year so far.
