Sadness mixed with hope. Good work.
What an unhappy family...I was hoping for some type of "cinderella" ending! I visited "there" too. I appreciated the subject and writing.

Such a touching "confession" of broken hopes, yet filled with that glimmer that leads us to a new dawn.

Well told.

What a hard place to be in. It sounds like the uncle was a good guy, but I'm not sure that I like the rest of the family. I like the way that you ended the piece. There are so many things that happened in my teen years, that I wonder if I just imagined them, or if they were real.

This was so sad. I don't know how the young teen kept her mouth close without complaining. That is amazing right there. Very good story.
