I am very intrigued by this. Marissa is a compelling character and I liked how much I learned about her in a short time - especially with all the questions she was asked. And she likes fall and winter. Interesting - that makes me like her even more because I love winter:) But really, I was able to get a sense for the orphanage. You did a great job with your details, but you didn't overdo it. I think this is a really good start and you should keep working on it!

This was very interesting. I really liked it, and I got wrapped up in it when I got to the third paragraph. But why is the second chapter locked?

I could really relate to Marissa, and the woman that adopted her doesn't seem like the best person, but what do I know? I could only read the first chapter; the second needed an early access code. I wish it didn't, would've been nice to see where she's being herded off to.

I read the first chapter, and I liked the plot so far! You did have a lot of grammatical errors, though. One main thing I noticed was that you incorrectly punctuate dialogue!

How to fix dialogue:

When writing dialogue, a comma, exclamation point, or question mark connects the tag from what the person said. Also, if the tag doesn’t describe how the person said something, it doesn’t need a comma. The first word in a tag, if there is no period, is always lower-case, unless it is a proper noun. Confusing? I thought so. I’ll break it down with some examples!


What to do:

“Hey(,)” (h)e said.

“Hi(,)” I answered.

“Hello!” (s)he replied.

“How’s it going?” (h)e asks.

“Good(.)” Julie shrugs her shoulders. (This doesn’t need a comma, or connecting punctuation because the tag doesn’t describe how Julie said “good”, only what she did next.

What not to do:

“Hey.” He said.

“Hi.” I answered.

“Hello!” She replied.

“How’s it going?” He asks.

“Good,” Julie shrugs her shoulders.

Make sense? Sorry, if this was harsh; just trying to help! Otherwise, this story has potential. Keep up the good work!

I think you have a great idea so far, and I love the title and cover. That said, your grammar mess-ups where a bit overwhelming and I didn't even cover them all below. You were missing words and it made the story very choppy. I suggest reading through it. Otherwise nice job :) Chapter 1: -para. 1 boarded not boardered -para. 2 "abosultely that he" I think you're missing a word in there. para. 2 "like he was little kid" missing an word between little and kid. para. 4 don't capitalize 'he' after the dialouge. -Remember to start a new para. for each dialouge. I wish you the best in your writing and I hope this helps!
