A Map for Wrecked Girls, by Jessica Taylor
While the point of the story is supposed to be the loss and reconciliation between two sisters, I found that portion of the story tedious and strained. The resolution was particularly unsatisfactory, relying on an implausible explanation and a far too easy solution. The survival tale proved more thought out and mildly suspenseful. And the juxtaposition of the two very separate stories was ultimately awkward. It was a hard slog to get through.
