Aw thank you so much c: I'm always a little self conscious about this story.. It's one of my darker novels. Have you read the revised introduction? It's its own separate arictle (you can read it on my page if you'd like)!

This is a fairly good start to your novel. Even though you're not from the south, you did a pretty good job with the dialogue, although it can be a bit hard to read. (This is probably because I'm Canadian and have had little exposure to people from the southern United States. ) Keep writing!

You'll only get a real enjoyment from the book if you just make up the accents in your head c:

That's what I did! But I'm still unfamiliar with southern accents. Oh well, this is a great start. You write very well.

Haha, you're right, the dialouge isn't an easy read. My grandmother is Southern, so I used the wording and phrases Kiwi and her friends use off that. Thank you, for the feedback :D I'm currently ediitng this story, to make it more reader friendly..
