I see what you did there...wait, the author of this story is Will? That worries me.
This is by far the best FictionPress story I have ever read and I will most definitely read the sequel. :)

Holy crap. This story was beautiful. Just... Wow. It was cute, action-packed and funny (as in 'trying to silently howl with laughter at 3 am while everyone else is asleep but failing because you've rolled off your bed and sent your mum running into my bedroom like there's a fire' sort of funny). I found myself falling in love with all the gang - Sammy and Vincent's hilarious banter, Will's so-called 'colourful' personality, Danielle's general awesomeness - and by the last chapter I genuinely felt like these people, that I've spent a whole night's worth of reading with, are real. I don't know whether it's my 4.30 am craziness or simply my AHHHHHH opinions on this story, but it feels really weird to be going back to school, back to normal life tomorrow, after what I've just experienced here. It takes a bloody talented writer to make someone feel like that. It's... I can't believe that Sammy and Vincent's story is finally over. Although, I've gotta say, I do love the Will-centred twist in the epilogue thing. Thanks so much for writing this! And by the way, if you don't become an author someday, the world will have missed out!

The last paragraphs did it for me, I love Will, he is my favorite character. Once I, reader, learned he uploaded the novel online it made perfect sense why he was such a diva during the entirety of the story.
I don't know if that made any sense.
I decided to read all 30 chapters before writing any reviews, and I simply love it.
What I'm struggling with is with your book's point of view on sexual preferences. Let's take Will's lifestyle, he is open about being bisexual but sometimes his friends don't think his attitude is acceptable. The question that this book raises in me is: what is wrong with being gay, or lesbian, or a crossdresser? I know I don't mind what people's choices are, and you probably don't, but reading in a book that a person cannot accept someone because he speaks openly about his sexuality makes me feel I'm stuck in the past, not looking into the future.
Let me give you an example. Will reminds me of an ex co-worker, for years he would flirt with anyone at the office, we eventually learned to live with his way of showing love, men or women, nobody thought he was crazy, mad, that he had a problem, nor anyone would joke about injuring him, or tell him to be normal. What is normal in the end?
I guess what I'm trying to know is what is your opinion on this, nor personal opinion if you will but from your book's pov, I'm concerned I didn't understand something and got this all wrong.
If this makes sense to you at all, and I cannot stress this enough, I loved it, my favorite part was when Will tried to stop Vincent from going to Sam's room, I can't believe how hard I laughed, I guess it was chapter 17.
I overlooked grammar and spelling errors this time because I would've stopped reading it, it is hard work indeed, and it would've taken all the fun out of it. Besides I'm working on my own writing skills and fighting with my own errors too.
Also I wanna know everything about Will, LOL :)

This story is like a modern day Mulan. Except for the reason why she dressed like a boy, nice twist.

I loved this story! I read it from beginning to end without stopping, I couldn't tear my eyes from my computer screen. The only criticism that I would offer is that sometimes the dialogue gets a bit confusing, with so many characters having one conversation at the same time. That being said, I loved how every character was so uniquely developed and raw. I really felt like I got to know these characters you've created! A job very well done.

Uhhhhh, never mind. I realized you have a revised version, and probably address this. But if you ever are looking to revise it again, I'd definitely have constructive suggestions ! And I really admire your light-hearted, upbeat style.
| ariawillows chapter 14 . 7/7/2014
Serious suggestion here, if you plan to revise this story, or maybe even publish it.
I like how light-hearted it is. At times that really works, and I wouldn't lose that vibe. But I think sometimes you give the tension away a little too easily. For example, it's never made very clear what the consequences for Sam would be if she was found to be masquerading as a girl at this all-boys school. Vincent was talking about running the new kid out of school in the beginning... That went away pretty quickly. I was expecting him to be more reluctant about befriending his roommate. Vincent & Tristan's relationship also really isn't as cutthroat/bad as people keep hinting at in the story. Everyone is super nice to Sam, which is nice and all, but doesn't make for a story with spark, and you would think that rich private school dudes would be a little less simplistic/cheerful/welcoming. Even this new conflict of potentially seeing her uncle is eased relatively easily.
Just my two cents.

I have never, ever been so absolutely and utterly captivated with a story quite like this before. The characterisation of every character was impeccable - believable and raw. I felt like I was in another world reading this, it was so beautifully written that I am in awe.

I LOVE THIS STORY! It's soooooo funny! I love Sa,
M! Her character is so adorable! Specially in the beginning! And will is just the cherry on top! There are so many memorable scenes but on of my favorites would be the motel scene where she pushes Vincent off the bed! And everytime Will hits on someone it's just toooooooo much! I couldn't stop laughing! Goshhhhh!
