Broken Paper Hearts is the thirteenth short in Seanan McGuire’s Jon/Fran stories – part of the larger InCryptid series. It should have struck me that this number is an unlucky one long before I picked it up to read.

Oh my god. How is it possible for a mere fourteen pages to mess me up so badly? This short story had me crying my eyes out. More than that, it had me feeling down and glum for the entire day. I regret reading this one so early in the morning!

I knew that this moment was coming, and yet it still tore my heart out. I’m blaming Seanan McGuire’s writing there. She does an exceptional job of storytelling and of making us actually care about her characters.
