This is an interesting story. What can you do when people talk about you? Absolutely nothing. Trying to explain yourself won't work and ignoring it doesn't really help either. I think it was Mark Twain that said, "A lie will travel around the world while the truth is still putting on it's clothes." People want to believe the worst about each other and a juicy piece of gossip makes you the most popular person in the room. Who can resist that? People will believe whatever they want to believe. Only the people who love you will know the truth. Rebecca can run but she can't stop anything. Sad isn't it? That people get pleasure from hurting someone so viciously. Good message. If you have the time please read my story 'Drift Away' and leave a review to let me know if you liked it.

I loved your story. It was easy to follow and kept my attention. I like seeing how your character moves from desperation to hofulness. I'm left feeling that she will discover happiness. I want to continue reading in the hope that she will rid herself of the revesed mother roll that was so unfairly placed upon her at such a young age. She is a sympathic character that I want to see succeed in life. Well done. There are few grammer mistakes that do not interfere with the stories greatness. Don't stop writting Becca you have natural talent. I await further works from you with anticipation.

I agree completely with the story being brilliant, but also with the grammar nazis. Although publishers do edit for grammar and punctuation, I think this is a competition and it should have been taken care of. Luckily, I vote based on story quality. And yours was fantastic.

This is a great story, you have a natural gift for engaging the reader and making the characters come alive. Focus on editing, you have some grammatical errors that take away from the quality of the story~ but these are things that will become easier to avoid the more you write and focus on your craft. Keep it up, Rebecca!!

Lovely piece of work. Would love to see it turned into a book. There is always room for improvement (or punctuational revising in your case haha) but otherwise, you have a great grasp on what it's like to be a young girl in a strange relationship with her mother. Hope you go far with this one

I enjoyed this story a lot. I agree with Luke, there are a few errors but nothing that proofreading can't fix. And of course grammar counts in a competition but nothing that we can't overlook for this great story.

What a witty story! I enjoyed the closeness have with the character, I feel as if I can relate to her as well. My favorite is the complexity of the relationship with the main character's mother..love, hate, confusion- brilliant.

Very engaging story with emotion and quick wit in every sentence. There were some nitpicky grammar things here and there, but nothing that detracted us from the story.
