Deeply moving story, beautifully written. I could feel the narrator's pain as she dealt with her angry and irrational mother. The characters come alive through the realistic dialogue. Great job!

This was so real, so sad, and so confusing for the MC. What on earth was going on with her mother? Nothing is more devastating than an abusive parent, no matter what kind of abuse it is. Great writing. Very sad and disturbing.

Good writing - leaves a lot of questions. Pulled into the MC's thoughts and confusion.

Wow, I was captivated. I have so many questions wondering about the mom, the dad, the family's future, you did this topic great justice. Wonderful work!
Reading a story like this begs me to remember that every story has two sides. I wonder what the mother's version would reveal?!? I say this as a mother who has had a child's version of an event take on a 180 degree turn from the events I saw. I hope I can read something in the not too distant future about a "sweet" memory of mother from this daughter. : )
