You really capture this girl's emotions, the situation. Very sad, powerful.

A sad child's story all wrapped up in 18 Apple Blossom Lane. It fits the topic to a "T".
How wonderfully you captured the heart of a child torn by divorce. You really got her voice just right.

This kind of childhood pain gets to me. Your main character is very sympathetic. I'm glad you didn't write a simple, they lived happily ever after ending since most kids don't in this kind of situation.

I could "hear" the child telling this story. Excellent piece.

Wow. Powerful. This is laced with a sadness that covers a wide range of feeling. Your MC 'told' this story so well. Good descriptions, the short thoughts and memories were very good. I enjoyed it very much-good job. This is one of my favorites this week. ^_^
Wow, well written piece from a child's perspective. I could relate to this as my own children had the painful blow of going through a divorce. Though time heals there are still hurts that carry over into teen and adult years. But God heals and restores praise the Lord. I could feel pain for the child and both parents. Great job! Keep it up!
