Synopsis

That's Not Right! by Alan Durant

One day, a bug came outside and a shoe squashed him. That's, the end. But, that's not the end of the story: there's Fred the bug's point of view, and his wife's and the shoe's. Ellie soon discovers that each character has a different version of events. Sometimes, a story isn't as straightforward as it seems.
