I like the way you kept the ball as the overarching theme. Neat approach to the topic.
A nice device to show the seasons of life.
I love the irony of the learning ball. Thiswas such a delight read.

It's just my opinion, but when the mc was getting at her brother, I wordy if it would've shown her feelings more if each letter had been in caps with extra space between words Also I was reading this as taking place now which means Ipods weren't invented when she was a teen.

But that's just little stuff that doesn't really matter at all because you wrote a wonderful story that everyone can relate to. Congratulations on your well-deserved placing! It really was a delightful read.
What a great story of a bouncing ball that bounced its way through generations. I enjoyed watching the shift in perspective.
