An eShort Story

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The short story that inspired Jennifer Weiner’s forthcoming novel The Next Best Thing.

Ruth has left her job writing for a hit television show for reasons she’d rather not discuss and is supplementing her increasingly dwindling savings with freelance writing projects—namely, helping anxious high school students craft a perfect college essay and lonely souls craft captivating online dating profiles. When she’s not working, she’s swimming—lap after lap at the local indoor pool, in a desperate attempt to wash away the sting of professional failure and heartbreak that she can’t seem to shake. It takes an unexpected client to show her that appearances can be deceiving, and that sometimes the bravest thing you can do is simply dive back in.

Customer Reviews

Swim

Not sure what this is supposed to be - it's certainly not a complete ebook. Two stories pasted together with the goal for readers to purchase more. Good writing but deceptive marketing.

Not a short story

This is not a "short story," as the description poorly states. This is two parts of two different short stories, and both are incomplete. It is a ploy to get you to buy the two separate complete books.

They are good beginnings, but just not a "short story," as the description states.

Swim

It was a rather boring read and I didn't understand why there were two different stories but the characters almost felt real
