Review of The Reunion

This is a well-done six-grade reunion story. Someone gets together their sixth grade class, most of them reunite and they are all surprised at how everyone turned out. In sixth grade, it's hard to really know how a person will be as an adulit. It's different than a 12th grader, who probably has been twice as shaped and molded into their 50 year old self as a 6th-grader.

I really like the narrator's voice and the editing pace; the audio of the other former students was used well, small stories, catching the accent or the rough quality to a voice that just admitted to a hard life of drugs and alcohol.
