A very nice change of pace from the other nursing home stories this week; this one has a distinctive and interesting voice. Very well done.

Very good story. I liked the voice of the MC--it was convincing and the sarcasm was true to character for most teens in her situation. Was glad her heart softened towards the patient. That she found the true Christmas spirit was an uplifting way to end this piece. Well done.
This is sweet. I like how she finally 'got' the true meaning of Christmas. Congratulations on second place. Well Done!

Donna-- I'm so glad to see this place in the EC list! Super congrats on your level placing too. You are definitely ready for the Masters level!

Your story is beautiful and heart-warming. I had to smile at the "more wrinkles than a Shar Pei" (we have one). :) I really enjoyed the foreign language, it added another dimension to this.
