The first short story in Paperwalls. Spoiler allert.
Today a woman that works with helping people getting birth had a presantasion about belifs and medicin from like the first thousands up until today. For example. Eli might have ben borh while his mother was sitting on a chair, with a hole in it!! :shock:

Well,and also she talked about how beings from the undergrown would addopt pretty and wellcreated newborns. And stwich them with ugly and disfunksioned babies. Whihc made me want to show her Paper walls, since border involves something of that. In the clas we talked about one book she have read about it. And an old north-norwegian movie made about it, or something. When recess arrived I said: "I've got something to show you!" and walked her to the school library, found paper walls. (I know wher all the Lindqvist books are 8-) ) And told her about the book and that short story. I wrote it down to her, on a note..
If we're lucky, I have just given her her new favorite auther!! :lol:

Besides LTODD, Border is the the best short story I've read. Ever.

I like it when profoundly moving literature is made accessible to me through an ingenious and exciting plot.
