Let Them Float: And Other Short Stories by Katy Wimhurst.

Prepare to have your perspective on life changed by this intriguing collection of short stories. The Main story, Let Them Float, explores the concept of escaping reality through floating in another existence. This read was deeply impactful and thought provoking. Sometimes, we wish we could escape into our own private world.

I really enjoyed reading this collection of short stories. Magical realism and social commentary are intertwined in the stories, creating a strong impact.

Prepare to be captivated by these incredible stories that expose the harsh truth of people's judgmental nature. I've never read a fictional book that addresses chronic illness, so I would like to express my gratitude to Katy for including it in these stories and bringing awareness to others. Katy's extensive research or personal experience with chronic illness is evident in her words, which she seamlessly incorporates into captivating and enchanting stories.

Many thanks to @SylphSea & @RandomTTours for a spot on the tour.
