My Heart is Either Broken, by Megan Abbott
Continuing Dangerous Women--My Heart Is Either Broken is a very good story. It's not speculative fiction, but I'll review it here anyway. The story has a very interesting take on how a woman's behavior is judged in the media, particularly when the family undergoes tragedy--in this case the kidnapping of their daughter. Told from the father's perspective, it frames a real dilemma, since on one hand it seems apparent that she doesn't deserve the treatment she is getting, but on the other that she actually might. Good stuff. 3 stars.
