Review of “If Only”
If Only by Lisa Schuch is a thought-provoking short story about a teenager, Holly, who gets in over her head after she gives out her phone number to someone on the Internet. Holly is a worthy person whose innocent behavior will forever haunt her.
If Only provides a valuable message to teenagers, and anyone who forms relationships with people on the Internet, that there are people in the world who are dishonest and could hurt you, so it is wise to be cautious with how you handle the Internet so that you will be safe.
If Only is well-written and captivating, and deals with a serious topic through the mode of storytelling, which successfully reaches and affects readers. I enjoyed this story and recommend it.
