Thought this was cute and clever. Like the way she progressed in age and circumstances. Could definitely relate to your MC.

You expressed the on going journey of a true reader very well.

Good job.

I enjoyed this piece. I loved how you rolled through the years, decades--effortlessly, with pleasant, smooth transitions. I felt like I had read a novel, in two minutes!

I enjoyed learning about 'her' passion for reading, her struggles with it, and how her relationship with reading changed over the years.

I appreciate getting critiques, which help me improve, so whenever possible, I try to give constructive advice. This was difficult with your piece, but after reading through a second time, I came up with this: 'she finally ran away crying in frustration'. If you take out (finally), the sentence becomes stronger.

Very nice. Loved it.
Really good piece. A true picture of an avid reader.
Congratulations in placing in the top 15 of your level. Good job.
I so can relate to your MC I loved to read as well. I'll still go to the library and check out 25-30 books at a time. You pulled me into your story.
