You're right. That was a sad story. I really liked how you put together the character of Carey. On some levels I could identify with her. The only thing that seemed off base was that it was written that Carey was a Senior. I know very few seniors who ride the bus or hang out alone under the stairs even if they are introverted. It was also kind of weird about the Stacey thing but I sensed you were using that to express the fact that Carey was uncomfortable with such casualness. Besides that, awesome story!

I love this. I love the way you've described her feelings about books, because it mirrors how I feel. I also like the way it only really explains itself very near the end, and even then you have to think a bit. Brava! *Applauds*

What a wistful story...I really like how you explain everything (if that makes sense), but then you'd have to be good at explanations because you're a columnist, right? ^_^ The only thing that I thought could make the story better was if the girl had been unnamed. It's just a preference of mine, and it might not be that way for others. Otherwise, a very very good and very sad story. ^_^

Tears in my eyes. This was wonderful. Very meaningful. Can't think of any way to express how wonderful this was.

That was depressing... good writing, though. I see what you mean by active reading... not the sort of thing where the author has allowed you to be able to skim read it and still "get it". Nice work.

In reading this, I am reminded of Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" which I firmly believe is the "perfect" novel In this story you have come closer to perfection than I've seen for a long time.

Cool. Deep, dark, amazing. I really love this story. I guess I can relate a lot to it, it reflects the state of mind I'm in at the moment. This is great.

This is good, but you can do better. It's really a 30k story squeezed into 17k, isn't it? I think Carey wrestles with some difficult questions and the answers come too easily, or they don't come at all. She seems to be in a state of denial, when I'd expect a stronger conveyance of grief, even if it is withheld and internalized.

Oh my gosh...That was so sad and I don't know,..depressing? But it is a very well writen story and I liked it. Please write more. :)

Yeow. I see a lot of myself in Carey, I think... Very thought-provoking, and yes, quite sad. I'm gonna be mulling over this one for a while.
