Gum Wrapper Confessionals

Surface area, generally, isn't what most base their choice in gum off of, but most people, generally, didn't write love notes on their gum wrappers.

Melissa Thinks: Gum Wrapper Confessionals’ plot comprises of exactly what the title hints at: a girl who writes her confessions of love on gum wrappers. Jude is in love with Henry Bishop, a close friend of hers. Every day in her boring Physics class (I can sooo relate to this), she ritually writes down her confession on a solitary gum wrapper, sticks her piece of gum in the wrapper, and throws it away. One day she accidentally breaks this sacred ritual, and... well you’ll have to read and find out what happens.

The one thing I really like about this story is how relatable Jude is. She feels like one of your friends who you get along great with. The story is created with great voice, characterization, and flow. You’d almost wish it was a full length story! The cuteness was just overflowing, and although I did wish for more of a conclusion at the end, it was still a spectacular story.
