This is a great story. I really enjoyed the characters and their gentle way of caring for each other.

The dialog was great, but partway through, you stopped using quotation marks. Also double space between paragraphs to make it easier to read.

I really liked your message. Its never too late to learn.' Back in the 40s and 50s, teachers would pass kids with learning disabilities my mom was super smart, but because she had trouble learning she waslabeled as slow. Great story.
so lovely! engaging and well written, i got drawn into this lovely story. Original take on the theme. I ave no constructive suggestions to add :-)as it seems to hang together just as it is...perfect!
I appeciated how you as the adult was so real with Kyle about your reading and inviting him into your solution. The '24 hour cut off', I liked that.
Very touching story. I used to work for an organization that taught adults to read. Had two clients; one male, one female. You hit it with the shame element involved for them. Well done!
