Summary:

Faylene Harps' life is anything but a paradise. Her best, and only friend, Colt Brenner just happens to be in all major school sports, is smart, funny, and the hottest guy in the 11th grade. The only reason people her age talk to her is for her gorgeous looking best friend. Her athletics are amazing but her grades are not, so it could effect her athletic status in the long run. Fay's only family is her mother, whose never home long enough for Fay to even talk to. Lastly on top of all that, Fay constantly hears creepy noises, moans, footsteps, and taps. She never told a soul for fear of being called a freak. It was the type of thing that defined sanity, and insanity.

One day Fay received a note in her locker telling her to meet a group called "The bridges" at Skipton's most Notorious night club, the Afterlife, on Saturday at midnight. Obviously she refuses, thinking it's just another prank. However fate has other plans. . .

Now Fay is stuck in-between two lives. The life she's always known and despised, and the life she's always feared. Faced with a terrifying decision that Fay cannot answer, she risks the lives of everyone she loves. Can she make the choice in time to save the ones she loves most? Or will her indecision being about the downfall of not only her family and friends, but the whole entire organization of the bridges themselves.

I got up to chapter eleven, and will read the rest later. I liked your writing style and the plot so far. Most of all though I liked Fay, I sort of wanted to give her a hug all the way though, because she just taks on these problems without meaning to. I love how she just struggles on, uncomplaining and a little comfused. I also thought you named your characters really well, I thought espitally 'colt' was an original name, and perfect for his character! I can't wait to keep reading (although I can't at the moment as i too have homework up to my eyeballs)

Hey! Thanks for commenting! On teenink it's about 20 chapters, and on word it's about 60 pages, so it's pretty long. so take your time with it. You don't have to read it right away.

I'm not yet finished with this, because it's quite long, but I did want to say that the plot for this is amazing. I'm excited to keep reading. Some of your writing could be fixed up. It's all small things, like keeping in past tense, because you did change to present tense at a few parts. Also, the story goes really fast, especially in the beginning. I'd like to get to know the characters a bit more. Maybe that's just me. But remember to show it, don't tell the reader what the character is like. Show it through actions or dialogue. Other than those things, I think you could really turn this into a great story :)

I love the Mortal Instruments! I can see why you'd think this is like those books. It reminds me more of Clockwork Angel, though where there is the Pandamonium Club...
