Lovely story with a double message - following the desires God has given you and communicating with parents. Well done.

Good job! & nice ending.
I liked how you described the feelings of a writer. I, also, like the double message of doing what God gifts us to do but the how very important approval is from parents to encourage the talents of their children. This story portrays that well. Good job.

This is a good story for teens about taking the risk to share their dreams with their parents. Maybe the mom didn't want to seem like she was prying into Tanya's private journal or something--trying to give her "space." I also think the story shows the importance of bouncing things off of good friends to get their advice and suggestions. Nice job! :)
Good teen-based story. Parents sometimes need a little nudge to be a part of your life. Good writing. Good advice from the friend.
