This is a powerful story. I felt every emotion and the pain as I read on. I would love to read the next chapter. This would make an incredible book. I feel like I just want to read more. I am hooked. I would love to know if you continue this story into a book. I WOULD BUY IT FOR SURE.

great powerful writing. the use of the present tense makes it all the more immediate. I have recently read a book called Race for Life. It was by the mother of Joel Sonneberg a 20mth old boy who suffered terrible burns in a car fire.It is an old book and Joel is now an adult and written his own book.
i am not sutre that this piece fits clearly into the years theme but it is gripping none the less.

A very gripping story

I remember visiting the burn unit at the local hospital in 6th grade. I writhed in agony just looking at the faces of the patients. I decided then and there never to be a nurse.

I can not imagine how much pain, both physically and mentally, you must have gone through. I am sorry for all the loss.

Your story expresses,quite graphically, a time of great testing and trial. I don't know why God didn't intervene on your behalf at the time of the fire, but I do know that He loves you deeply.

Very moving and painful to read.

Evincing. Convincing. Compelling. Overwhelming.

Please take Judie’s advice and cement your story in a book. Please.

The book will be published in April
Great story. The action and internal dialogue got me hooked and held my interest.
