| Fatin chapter 2 . 6/17
Best story ever! So sad taken down. I was just about to re-read it for the 7th time!
Dave's interlude is the best n enhances the story.
I think his interludes is necessary.
We want to know his thoughts.
Other stories in fictionpress also has the hero's interludes.
So what is wrong with this one ?

| hello chapter 1 . 4/8
I think you should know your story might be on Goodreads under the name Kitty Parker. Title there is Facing Reality.

Um, wow. Not your usual ending, is it? And for a high schooler? Yeah, I think I have to congratulate you. I really enjoyed this story. Especially the style of it being homework. I do think that the "Dave interludes" weren't necessary. While seeing Dave's pov was fun, I think you could have easily gotten away with not having it at all. Sorry to hear you won't be back. Good luck with whatever you are doing!

Please please right a sequel
| Lexia and Dave chapter 27 . 12/10/2016
Lexia and dave have good dynamics.
Yes the ending a bit abrupt.
Andrew dying story path very unique
But i think Lexia should not run away afterwards.
She should stay and Dave should be her pillar of support.
It could be slow burn post-andrew death for dave n Lexia...
Is there a sequel? Please do one. Pls pls pls...
Do you have other stories like this by the same author?
Please please right a sequel to this story...

I love the stories very much. Only in 2016-end discovered and binge-read.
| Elle Winters 9 chapter 30 . 11/12/2016
Brave for writing this ending. I forgot that this was to happen. I guess it's hard to read because many times we read to escape or own reality a little. This is too real and realistic. It hurts. I didn't enjoy it, but it's not an insult to you, it's more that I'd rather not be reminded of reality when it's already ever present.

| Clare's chapter 30 . 5/11/2016
Let me just say WOW! This story was absolutely amazing, it had me actually excited to catch my bus just so I could read it. I quite enjoyed your writing style. This story made me laugh, cry and everything in between. Your story is one of the best I've seen on here in a while!

I've only recently found this story on FP even though it was published/uploaded back in 2004.
From the very start I loved this story, and as I read on I grew to appreciate it and really marvel at your writing ability.
I'm glad that I read this when it was completely finished so that I didn't have to stop reading or wait for an update. And I think because I read it all at once, it really hit me that in 30 chapters (well 29 minus the conclusion) you managed to develop your characters so well. They were so tangible and in terms of growth you could see Lexia's self-confidence grow and watched her step out of her pit of isolation. Dave was relentless in his pursuit of Lexia but at the same time he grew as well. He matured and he stopped being as arrogant but I think his character really started to understand other people more and really vary the types of people he hung out with.
I'm not going to lie, but Andrew's passing made me cry in reality and I got weird looks from my sister...
Although his death was a bit sudden (and I felt a bit poorly executed, but I'm biased), it really hit home with me. I knew how important Andrew was to Lexia and I feel like his death was a huge turning point for both reader and Lexia. Yes he was ill, and this might be me reading too much into this, but at the same time we all knew Lexia wouldn't really grow as much as she did without Andrew because (like when she went ice-skating) she depended on him too much, and even unconsciously would reach for him. I'm not saying that Andrew deserved to die or that Lexia didn't need his support, it just felt like another shove to a more self-assured Lexia.
And before I leave this really long review (I'm really sorry for it, I had thoughts that I just really wanted to share), I did want Dave and Lexia to end up together. I loved their dynamic. Although the ending in the conclusion was hopeful and positive, I just wanted something more solid to hold on to.
I guess this whole review was a really round-about way of saying I loved the story and your writing style. I thought the way that you presented the story as an assignment was ingenious, although the lesson that Lexia ultimately learned wasn't clear.
Thanks for writing this, I'm pretty sure I'll think about this story again in the future or on a daily basis haha
