    Kind of cute read. ^_^ He searched, his eyes darting from shoe to shoe, somuch so that by fifth period he had a huge headache, as if all those shoes had each kicked him in the head. Hahaha...

    How dare you call yourself a short-story! It isn't even a mini-story! I guess I call it a nano-story or something.

    I love good short stories. This one had lots of potential but really lacked substance. It's a cute concept but really needing padding out a bit more, a few more pages would have done that. The ending was way too abrupt and should have been a strong point. I've read much better shorts in all genres. 2 stars from me and that's generous.

    Not a conventional story, but that's what makes it stand out. It reminded me of Sue Heck from The Middle, when she kisses some nerd on a hay wagon at a church Halloween Party. Anyway, it was funny but I'm not really much of a romance fan.

    Rating: 2.5 starsThis "book" is one of those that you see at the top of every teen list on iBooks. I bought it hoping for a cute short story, but it's really a micro-story. At about seven iPhone-sized pages, it took me about two minutes to finish. Nonetheless, it's intriguing and entertaining. I actually would buy a full-length sequel. I actually went out and bought a couple more of Yaritza Garcia's short stories to read right now. I'll post the reviews in a couple minutes! ;)One more thing..."He realized he was literally the only one who didn't dress up...he was a sophmore-surely too old to dress up for Halloween."ummm, I love Halloween and dress up every year. So sue me.

    Well, that was twee and dainty. This five page free short story features agreeable writing from an author clearly gifted with style but unfortunately The Girl in the Converse Shoes has no substance to back it up, proving too short to make an emotional connection with the reader and too uneventful to be a truly great short story. The ending is also very unexceptional, bringing the events to a close without actual closure. I like it though: it's a sweet story, well written and great, considering it's free, incredibly short and about pink shoes.

    Gag. (Way too fluffy and overdone for me, sorry.)

    The Girl in the Converse Shoes by Yaitza Garcia2 starsThis is a cute little story about a guy who goes to a party and meets a girl with pink converse shoes. It's cute, but way too short. I thought it was like the male Cinderella. Only there was no evil stepsiblings, he was just an awkward, dorky teenager. I didn't really like it a whole lot, but I thought it was cute and quick. Since it was free I don't feel cheated or anything. It would've been nicer if the story was just a few pages longer.Cover Thoughts: It's a cute cover (just like the book). I really like the Converse.

    This was a free book I downloaded on my nook. It is really short only 8 pages long. The story was just okay. The thing that bugged me the most about it was the writing. I'm not the greatest when it comes to grammer, but I felt I could have written the story better. There were a few sentences that did not flow well, and could have been rewritten. After, I finished reading the story, I deleted off my nook.

    An ok read, but it's waaay shorter than a short story.I would've given it more stars if it were longer... (meaning I would've had more pages to rate, since in my opinion, it has potential)

    this wasn’t a short story. more like a micro-story. i still shelved it as short story though whoops. ☺️was pretty cute. quick dose of some fluff and high school romantic awkwardness (:

    Cute short story

    a. The author uses the craft of ending in the story. At the end of the story, the author leaves the reader with a realization of the person he was searching for the entire time was right next to him the entire time. The girl b. The author did a good job with the craft, just when the character had given up and you thought the story would end with him not finding the girl, but one last observation helps him find his mystery girl. The story was very close to ending that the outcome was unexpected. c. For this to be a short story, I think the author did well using some of the elements. The author could have introduce the mystery girl more in the story. I wanted to know what she thought of the main character. d. I would create activities and opportunities for student to get to know one another. This way they find out that most of them share a common interest that they could probably build a friendship; cutting down on bullying.

    I will try to make my review shorter than the story - but it will be hard! It is labelled "flash fiction" and is only 3 pages on my Nook.It was well enough written and the author has some good turns of phrase, so I will probably check out their other works. I could only give the story itself 3 stars, however. With a story this short, you only have time for one idea and you have to nail it. Unfortunately, there was a major hole (view spoiler)[he supposedly missed her because her hair color was wrong, but it was explained in the beginning that he was only looking at shoes, not hair color (hide spoiler)] that made the joke fall flat for me. Otherwise, a clever enough idea, with efficient use of details to make it come alive without being unnecessarily long.

    I've read one of Yaritza's short stories before and I thought it was okay but nothing incredible, but I enjoyed this one a lot more. I usually don't enjoy reading stories as short as these (they're literally like 2 pages long) as I find you can't really get engrossed in the story in such few pages but I actually really liked this one.I was wanting to find out who the girl in the shoes was, and was relieved this ended all wrapped up instead of on a cliffhanger like this last story I read by him.He has a wonderful way of getting you to feel like you know and care for the characters in such a short amount of time.If you're wanting literally a few minutes read with a good impact definitely check out some of his work.

    Kinda pointless to read, but still very sweet. The writer could have gone into more depth, but it was still better then traveling everywhere to find her, making a fool of himself asking, takes pity and tells him story. It shows that love doesn't have to be a ridiculous journey to "get the girl," it shows you simply just need to walk up to someone and say hi.

    I actually really liked this story. It was incredibly short, but told a complete story. I was really rooting for the main character in his quest for the mystery girl. I loved hearing about his efforts and results. This is a sweet little quick story that is appropriate for many ages as young as pre-teen.

    Short and fluffy little story in a modern take on Cinderella. His discovery of his Cinderella's identity is cute and though the ending was rushed, the story is overall decently written for being so short. If I had any critique, it would be to make that ending less awkwardly cut off as the pacing of the rest of the story is much better.

    Just begun reading it while having breakfast today, and finished the book before I finishedthe breakfast. LolBut it was fun, so okay. There definitely wasn't much to love or hate, but I really enjoyed how Garcia described the character's feelings. (I even forgot the MC's name)

    Very cool book! Very interesting and it got me thinking that this was kinda a retelling of Cinderella, except the way it happens in this story could pass for a TRUE story whereas with Cinderella not necessarily. Great short-story of 8 pages long!

    Got this as a freebie and didn't realize it was a "flash" short story. Cute. I could see the characters in a longer version fleshing them out. Only complaint is too short otherwise cute modern story

    It was cool. Not as good as her "In love with my best friend" short story, but it was still good. Oh, and I have to mention that I love the covers to all her books!

    El "libro" más corto que he leído en mi vida. Es más, al terminarlo me di cuenta que ya lo leí hace años...A pesar de ser super mega archi re contra corto, fue tierno.Dos estrellas.

    4.5 more like. Enjoyed the quick read, but wanted more of a story definitely! If you have the time download it from the book store in iTunes - that's where I found it for free!=)

    El problema no es que sea breve, el problema es que podría haber tenido una página más para que el final no sea tan abrupto.

    Cute but WAY too short - As in just over 700 words. It was over before I had time to process any thoughts. So I didn't want to give it a rating.
