The Target of Elizabeth

Hi Lost Petail.

I enjoyed reading your story. What it did really well was remind me what it's like to be at school (even though I haven't been there for a long time). I really like your author's voice, it connects. When I first started I was given some advice by inkitt staff that helped. One point was to separate out speech, giving who says what a line to itself and stating who said it. I'm sure you are going to develop this work in your own unique way, I love that you have chosen to depict someone with a great challenge raising sensitive issues. Well done hun. x Darcy Quinn

Darcy Quinn

I found it very well written, it conveyed all the dilemma, and the angst of a young girl in turbulence, about to betray her body and her mind to buy into something she didn't quite believe in, A wonderful illustration of the sneering peer group that she unfortunately bows to. It leaves you worried for her and wondering how she feels now.

Darcy Quinn

There was lots to love about this, I found myself very engaged and rewarded in so many different ways, I have only recently started writing myself so am more given to overall impression than in depth analysis, this is what I found. I loved the name choices and the way the characters were developed, you did this in a way that helped me to visualise them, gave them history, quirks and memorable personalities. In fact I liked Pierre and Ash enough to want to go on reading about them as main characters. If only you could keep them alive. I mourned. They deserved a better future, to get out of it somehow, a close scrape with death. Really interesting position with the heartless woman in chapter two creating him in her dead child's image. I have seen a similar idea used before, but I have to say you worked it in a unique way and pulled it off more successfully. I would happily read the whole book, yes, the previous comment about alternating seems sound to me. Well done, I enjoyed it.

staring at my reflection

I enjoyed reading this, it did make me think on the point that was being made about self image and how the media can destroy this by encouraging people to make unfavorable comparisons. It went on to show the internal anguish and conflicts this caused. In that way it made the impact that it set out to make.without making the reader feel uncomfortable. I particularly liked specifically the few lines about direct comparison with eyes, legs, thighs, those lines worked well, like a new twist on William Blake, Why was I born with a different face. Thank you writer, enjoyable..

George

I loved George, some even saw it written on back alley walls. I was led by your story and touched by its sentiments. There are some beautiful moments in your work. Loved it.
