I enjoyed this story very much. Just reading it brought a sense of humanity. Sixteen year old George and his sister had to fend for themselves because mom although she works so they thought, her spare time is spent at the bar. I could feel his shame and his protectiveness for his family and their quaint cottage which they call home. There's a story behind that cottage and a history that involves George's family. I felt how his responsibilities overshadowed his own happiness of being a normal teen. What I absolutely found that is heartwarming, the other characters. A group of people who knew George's family and set out to right a wrong and to help the brother and sister to stay together. Stability, yes George and his sister Eleanor desperately need, "stability." One person I felt totally at ease with was Uncle Morris. His love and commitment to George and Eleanor is duly noted, the wildest thing is Uncle Morris is not a blood relative. Wonderful read and one that will capture your heart. Easy to follow and writing style truly voiced. I won this book on BOOKLIKES giveaway. Thank you, Darlene Cruz
So, Maggie Spence says that she'd call someone at home again if they mention her kids again.
So, Maggie can say she has kids, but if I mention that she does, am I going to get a call at home? Perhaps if she doesn't want anyone saying anything about them, she shouldn't put their pictures up on her Facebook page, by the way. And give us more information like that she owns a small business, making it easier to find. Or describing the picture and the background to make it easier to pick that picture out.
Logic. Some meatbags just don't use it.
"'DAMN THEATRE KIDS ALWAYS PUTTING ON SHOWS!'"
Well, I mean, that's what they do. That's like saying, 'damn athletes always playing sports.' That's what they do.
Just because you suspect them of using your booth to practice - which is right now an unsubstantiated allegation - to blame them for doing what they're supposed to be doing? That's completely unreasonable.
And yes, this character yells. 100% of the time. Ugh. Even in comics, where everything is all caps, all the time, the characters aren't yelling at you. It would just be a PITA to read the text that small. I'd go fucking nuts if I thought someone was yelling all the time.
