This is very heartfelt, and it captures the sense of a teenage speaker. However, I'm having trouble buying the fact that he's actually schizophrenic; there needs to be more "showing" rather than just telling. Having lived with someone who suffered from that condition, I know that it's a regular part of life and would be very hard for him to hide, even from a father distracted by grieving. Still, I commend you for taking on such important subjects. Please take a moment and read my story, "Dating Safari," and share your comments.

Interesting. I think the story would have benefited from more dialogue. Please write a review of my story, 'Drift Away' and let me know what you think.
