Ella doesn’t get the traditional butterflies in the stomach about Oscar.
They grew up together, so her love is more advanced, and she gets slow-moving caterpillars, that one day grow wings.

After strange goings on in the house at night, they both visit a local psychic where they see her mum and his dad – and the unknown guy in the Soccer Alaska cap.

They realise that love is blind, and they have been blocking out everything but each other.

A good story but, either my Kindle Paperwhite is on the blink, or this particular story doesn’t support e-ink very well.

This is a short story that can be read in a few minutes. It's a nice readable ghost story. Very predictable but no less enjoyable for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved Becky’s Before He Was Famous so I couldn’t wait ... 12 Dec. 2014

I loved Becky’s Before He Was Famous so I couldn’t wait to read this. It’s not long enough but I suppose it’s a short story! I didn’t expect what happened to happen, put it that way. For a short bedtime read this is great but I need more books please, longer ones!
3.0 out of 5 stars Book Review: "Our Frozen Wings" (Becky Wicks) 9 Oct. 2015
By Eleanore T. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Skagway, Alaska, natives Ella and Oscar are teenagers, very much in love. Their date-night destination this evening: to see the town psychic, Damien, and find out why Ella keeps hearing strange music in her family's house at night, where she lives with just her mother.

The meeting with Damien, and a number of other townspeople, some known and some unknown to the teenagers, turns up more questions than answers ... at first. But as the evening unfolds, it becomes clear that neither Oscar nor Ella really have a grasp of the situation as it stands, until the final shocking revelation.

Author Becky Wicks presents her short story, "Our Frozen Wings," which is a sweet, small-town romance with a wholly unexpected twist at the end ... precisely what you want to see in a short story.

The short story genre in general tends to be characterized by much less character development, far fewer subplots (or none at all), and very little description or backstory when compared to a full-length novel, simply because the length requirements of the genre demand less of everything. For that reason, some readers aren't as enthusiastic about short stories as they are about other types.

Wicks's short story features three main characters, aforementioned, in a straightforward situation whose forward momentum doesn't span any length of time beyond a single evening outing. Ella and Oscar take turns as the focal characters, sometimes within the same chapter, a phenomenon that some readers will call "head-hopping" and be less than pleased about, but assorted romance novels have that kind of back-and-forth between the hero and heroine's perspectives, respectively.

From the first chapter, Wicks achieves sympathy for her likable protagonists: their infatuation and intimacy with one another will make even the most cynical or hardened smile in recognition and empathy. Who, after all, hasn't been head-over-heels in love before?

And the climactic sequence will catch every reader off-guard, guaranteed ... I never saw the pivotal plot twist coming, which is as high a compliment as I can give an author, especially in a genre (romance) that tends to so often encompass predictable cliches. No cliches here!

The weakest part of the work is the amount of backstory and the flashbacks that make up a vast majority of the plot. While perhaps necessary for this particular story situation and these specific characters, backstory and flashbacks stop the forward momentum of the plot in its tracks, and whenever that happened, I lost interest in what was going on. Perhaps the work could be reformatted in vignettes so that the important scenes of the characters' lives could be shown (instead of "told") in "real time" sections, one after another, up to the present evening, so that the "current day" story wouldn't be jeopardized by skipping back so often.

That said, for a quick, sweet read with a sensational ending, cozy up with "Our Frozen Wings."

3.0 out of 5 stars This is not the best ghost story I've read 10 Jun. 2015
By LUCY BELL - Published on Amazon.com

This is not the best ghost story I've read, but I'm sure many others would will think it's the greatest. I rated it three stars and I will check out other stories by this writer. I recommend all who like ghost stories give it a try.
