Technical mistakes here and there, which you'd probably spot on a second read so won't list them few here. (Sorry if am being too critical.)
A chapter that shows further difference between Renee and Jenna's lifestyles and upbringing. I do hope you'd go more into the aftermath of the incident with Renee's father and the knife in future chapters. And of course this does rather leave us hanging! *staring at the empty sky beneath my feet, hanging from the tree banches overlooking the cliff, feeling nauseous* I wonder what type of mother Jenna has... Only you can answer that!
I love the lines:
She remembered the angry phone calls and letters Jenna ad made and written. The letters she had received in that feminine writing. Letters that looked harmless but hit blow after blow at poor Jenna.
Such contrariness and...it just strikes a chord in me.

Ah shut up Izzy, you're too critical sometimes. (Just thought I'd mention that)
Anyways, lol I'm sorry my dear, going onto my point. I was in tears when I read this :'( I hope you will continue this, I haven't read something so romantic in such a long time. It's nice to see that there isn't like.. any negative responses to the lesbian relationships. There always seems to be that downfall, and everyone adds emphasis on certain characters saying "you sick dyke, it's wrong" I'm so tired of homophobia in stories, it's nice to see such a change. You potrayed the characters so well. I wish Jenna didn't have to die *cries* I would really like to read more, this is so romantic, and your descriptions are vivid and just simply beautiful. I hope that you will post some more because I can't wait to read it. Oh and by the way my name is Jenna and in a lesbian relationship *giggles* so I'm enjoying this even more.

Again, some grammar mistakes. And it's "Thorny" not "Throny".
In the first chapter you said:
Jenna, Jenna, Jenna. With her dark hair tied back in a ponytail, fanned out on a pillow or tucked behind her ear, she was beautiful. She remembered how vain Jenna was when it came to her hair
Then in the second chapter you said Jenna had strawberry blonde hair which the sunset turned to an intense shade of orange.
So is the first chapter description about JENNA or RENEE? If the former, then you have a mistake in your story.
Tragic story...well written chase scene and I managed to get a homey, calm feel in me during the time in the cafe.
I wonder how the stains got in the backseat of the car (as you mentioned in the first chapter). If you're going to continue the story, I suppose I'll find out.
I like the phrase "broken shadow of a human being". Poetic...
Nice story. And it REALLY makes me curious about Renee's background. I like how it's told from her point of view, but not in first person.

Hallo. You got grammar/spelling mistakes, missing words/letters here and there. And you switch from "Jenna" to "Jeena" mid-way this chapter. Tad bit confused why.
Descriptive, we can see how much Jenna/Jeena meant to her. Nicely written.

this is the first story that i have read on fiction press that has made me truly cry, i dont know weather it was your style of writting or the feeling of sadness that you have managed to put through out this peiece of writting, but it was a beautifull read.

That was powerful. It's pretty good. But I think you have some grammar mistakes there. I'd like to see more.
