Haha. Andy was hilarious with the just stealing of the car thing.
This one seems to be better written...somehow.
There were no massive paragraphs... Yeah. I have a short attention span for things like that. LOL! Ricky's friend is funny, I love gingas!
(I am so haircolorist.)

And you thought I was never going to read! Pfft. You have no faith in me! (She forgot...) :)
Sounds good! Though, I would advise not putting those authors notes in the middle, and just quote yourself and put it at the end.
Still, amazing for a twelve year old :)
There was no real indication to how old her sisters were, though, there was kind of a personality difference between them. Great :) Character development!
She sounds like she has a VERY unique dress sense :)
Onto the next chapter, I think.

Hey - thought I'd check out your story like you asked. Nice first chapter setting everything up. She seems an interesting character.
Can I make a few suggestions - nothing really major but...
1. In that first bit where she's telling all about herself, could you maybe split it into a bunch of paragraphs just for ease of reading?
2. Use more action tags rather than dialogue tags, especially when there's only 2 people in the scene. Once you establish that she talks, then he talks, you can leave off most of the "he said", "she answered" kind of stuff because we know the turn-taking rhythme of a conversation. Of course if there's more than 2 you have to include more he/she/names kind of stuff but again use actions rather than said/asked etc.
3. When you're writing in first person, you have to use a lot of "I's" but try to avoid starting too many sentences with them which is very hard to do I know!
Below I've copied a few of your sentences and put () around what I'm talking about.
“Oh, sorry Andy.” he (said, letting let) go, I sighed loudly, catching my breath. (I took Taking*) the earphones out of my ears (and - I) shut off my iPod Touch and put the earphones inside my pocket under my tutu. (*THIS AVOIDS STARTING THE SENTENCE WITH 'I')
“Nice, bro. So, where’s this house of ours?” I (asked, walking walked) ahead of him towards the entrance. He walked with me, matching my pace easily.
“About a half-an hour’s drive from here. It’s close to dad’s new station.” Drew (said, holding held) the door for me to get out.
“Thanks. Well, what about my new high school?” I (asked, searchingsearched) for his, or my car.
Anyway these are just suggestions. Keep writing! You're doing great, especially since you're 12!

don't be too arrogant on the editing. No matter what age you are you can make mistakes. You didn't have any blaring mistakes that made me stop and laugh at how stupid they were but you did have some.
I'm still a bit confused on the point of this story or maybe i'm just slow. Anyways, it's a pretty good story.
ps. your age most definitely doesn't matter huns. No need to remind us :]. You are doing just fine with your editing and what not.

i would enjoy a little more detail but that could just be me wanting answers to far too many questions. I like this story, so far. The characters seem to have unique personalities and i always enjoy a little character development added to a great story. Funny, i wear tutu's lol. I have a black one that i wear to school. My friends call me weird because of that but f* them. I'd like a little more character development as far as the family goes, specific personalities and styles. Some mistakes with grammar but not many.
Also i'd like to thank you for the many reviews on my story. Aha; you're 12? I just recently turned 13. :]
