Chapter 2 - Algorithm [Intriguing]
Such great world-building--I could walk and think like Alex. The descriptions were so acute and frivolous at the same time, which was great. I liked the analogy of the character's life to paper laid flat and then crinkled, "the lingering smell of old books and bells..." phrase, and also the "Alexandra did not have a face" line.

That being said, sometimes less is more. Try mixing longer sentences with short ones. Again, imagery was great at some points but overwhelming at others. Finding a nice balance is hard, but the author definitely can get there.
I admire the way the author writes--it mirrors the chaos inside of Alex. A good chaos. There was just a few too many grammar mistakes (for example: "had flew" -> "had flown"
"glancing sat" -> "glancing at"). Again, super confident the author can fix this, but the mistakes took me out of the story for a bit.
I think my main suggestion for the author would be to focus on Algorithms. It is the name of the chapter. Maybe start the chapter with the lines that read: "Alexandra Bridgette lived her life by an algorithm..." Or something like that.
Overall, great work!
