Great little slice-of-life story, well-written.
This was a good read. Wonderful story of Annie Oakley. Well written.
It's always interesting to be able to catch a glimpse behind the public persona... nicely done.
Cute story with realistic characters. Good job!

Fun story. Keep up the good work.
I can imagine the excitement Sarah was feeling. I liked the hints that Sarah did not want to hold all of the conventions of what made a lady back then. Annie seemed comfortable in both worlds of lady and tomboy.

Seemed to slow down a little in places, but you resolved your MC's conflict well.

Good description of Annie Oakley and the poster.

Interesting picture of this slice of history. Good description of Annie - I could see her in my mind. Good job.

If I didn't know better, I'd think you were telling the story from first-hand experience, that YOU were the little girl who actually got to talk with Annie Oakley! This is very well done, I liked the descriptions, and the thoughts and conversations you describe. Good story!
