So the question is: Do I have the words that would do justice to this story? No. I'm going to have to break things down into little pieces.

The pacing is fantastic. I literally read the whole story in one go, barely taking any breaks. There was a heavy touch of class in its simplicity (I'm not exaggerating, here. Like I said, "justice"). One mistake many writers I have read make is having their young characters sound a lot like adults which destroys the essence of having child characters in the first place. It was refreshing to have Em retain her little-girl innocence despite withdrawing deeper and deeper within herself. A wonderful job was also done in portraying the very horror she was going through; so much I felt like jumping into the story and stabbing that guy. You described stuff, without overly grossing it out. Thumbs up.
Final note: The villain. He definitely wasn't likable, but he was compelling. I gave everything a five-star in my ratings. If there were six, I would have gone further. This is one story that should be pinned on a homepage.
