Other Fiction Short-Story Review: “Golden Children” by Avi Lewis Wolfson

This is a story about a teacher who is an abuser. The story starts with an incident between the teacher and a special needs student in his class. The reader then gets a view into his marriage where his true feelings towards these children are revealed. The author’s purpose in writing the story is to point out that this type of abuse occurs more often than we think but the children are often unable because of their challenges to report the incidents. That being said, I found the story to be engaging and I was curious throughout to see what the outcome would be. I didn’t particularly like the main character but I don’t think the author wanted him to be liked. There is some graphic violence so this would not be appropriate for younger readers.
