End of the Line by Steven Penny is a gripping short story. With some elements of thriller and horror we are introduced to a little girl called Maeve. She is a child of divorced parents, Caroline McCandless and Dave O’Grady, who are both quite troubled in their own ways. Caroline is a workaholic, while Dave spends most of his free time with several women. But those are just arguments they have against each other while arguing about something far more important – their daughter Maeve.
As time passes Maeve becomes more and more distant from them both as she feels she is the sole reason her parents are fighting. This only makes the problem worse and worse, until it all comes to a horribly spectacular finish which is quite literally felt, not read.
End of the Line tells us the story of a sad little girl. It tells us about the seriousness of mental health and the lack of it, but at the same time makes us question what is real and what is not.
