I enjoyed reading Belle Boggs short story, “Opportunity”. The story of a young school principle is very relatable. Many of the settings mentioned in the story, places like Richmond, Kings Dominion, and the Hampton Roads Tunnel are recognizable even though I have only lived in Virginia for a short period of time. The story pays careful attention to detail and you can learn a lot about the characters from the small stories about them within the short story. It continually goes back in time to when Lila was with her ex boyfriend Byron while continuing on with the story in the present about Lila’s father, her issue with organizing a career fair and a new love interest. The dialect of the characters fits well with their characteristics and background. The ending keeps the reader thinking and looking back to see how it relates to the story.
