I can't help but love Zoe - what a great imagination, maybe too much so for her humdrum 5th grade world. Great writing!

A very enjoyable read!

Clever and imaginative. I suspect that it would flow a little better if you could use some stronger formatting effects to highlight the fantasy sections. I appreciate that you have done this with the tilde but I only picked this up myself on my second read. Personally I would recommend use the Italics tag. But a fun story that certainly raised a smile

This truly hits home as a teacher. It's true, each child has a God-given, unique way of learning. The challenge is trying to fit all their "uniquenesses" together. What a fun story. Your MC was delightful.

So cute and a great concept. I stumbled over the flow between Zoe's inner and outer world, maybe some formatting changes as suggested would have been helpful. Really enjoyed this one!

Awww! I loved Zoe! She was charming and delightful character and I felt sad that she wasn't fully "appreciated" for her uniqueness by the others. This was a neat story! Thanks for sharing and congrats on your highly commended! ^_^
Great story...well written...congrats on your placement!

Thank you, everyone, for your feedback! I do have a question that I'll probably post on the message board as well -- umm...how do I get the italics? I originally wrote Zoe's thoughts in italics but then couldn't figure out how to get them to transfer to the format.

This is the funniest entry I've seen since I joined FWs. I hope you churn out more of these.
I can so relate to Zoe! I was exactly the same when I was at school. She's my kind of 5th grader. Well done on the Highly Commended!!
