You Only Get One Shot is an intriguing story. It draws you in from the start. It keeps your interest throughout.
What would you do if someone demanded you write the best story of your life, to be judged online? That your life depended on it.
Four authors are sent an email saying they must write a story. Not just any old story, the best story you can possibly write. The four authors must write or die. A fifth author is already dead, and the anonymous sender is taking credit for their untimely demise. The authors are all responsible for a suicide. They have to write and post their stories on the Internet that evening. The authors are off to the races and the deadline is drawing near. It’s a contest and the winner gets to live.
I liked each of the four stories in this book. It is four stories within a larger story, which is pretty cool. The setup is very clever and the execution is solid. The ending is satisfying. To me, the tension is the best part.
4/5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐
