The Best We Can by Carrie Vaughn is not actually a book, but a short story. I found this short story while looking for books to read on my Nook*. I had read Ms. Vaughn’s other novel After the Golden Age. The story was short and inexpensive and I thought why not. So I purchased it, downloaded it, and put it in the read cue. I read it this morning. It was GREAT!
The Best We Can is a first contact story and what a story it is. It felt realistic, which is something most first contact stories don’t have. When I got to the end of the story I was very disappointed as I wanted MORE!

The Best We Can

Oh and go read some more of Carrie Vaughn. I recommend the Golden Age books.
* I love my Nook – no I’m not making any money telling you all that.
