LOL! What a fiesty character Mrs. Hobbs is! I do hope her book comes in and though it is sad to see the missed opportunity to befriend this bubblegum-chewing girl, the irony is spot-on!
Such a sad MC. I don't believe the book will help her much. She's not very likable, but she is very real--good character study.

I wasn't at all sure where this was going, but the last line said it all, and then, yes, it all rang true! Good job!

I'm thinking Angelika could benefit from the book. The story had a great message. Thanks for sharing.
I picture Mrs. Hobbs as crotchety. She should have a lot more to worry about than a little gum chewing.

You did a great job giving life to your characters. Kudos.

Underneath all that bluster, beats a very lonely heart! It just takes a bit more time to ferret out the truth in a person like this MC. Most of us don't want to do that! Funny how we often remember these kinds of folks though.
