Some Laneys Died by Brooke Skipstone is a truly wonderful science fiction thriller that explores alternate realities based on the choices Laney makes.

The story is set in the town of Austin, Texas and is narrated from the point of view of a normal high school student facing not so normal problems.
The approach used by the author to make the books main protagonist a normal high school girl has proved key in making the book as riveting as it is. The author expertly uses vivid description in the narration of this story, while only rarely going into excess. This has aided greatly in giving the intended audience a general feel of the story and also in character development in general. Apart from this the author has also used direct speech to further develop the story and engage the audience as the story unfolds. These stylistic devices have proved effective in making the book the wonderful read that it is. In addition to this, the author seeks to speak on certain issues that affect the everyday human being. While this book is a sci-fi exploration of alternate universe theory, like all good science fiction Brooke Skipstone uses this as a vehicle to tell a human story that explores issues of family breakups and sexual assault.

The author writing style is punctuated by witty and clever storytelling that ensured the story was continuously entertaining.
