I really loved your story. It's not often that you come across a really good story that actually has a good message and that... i dont know i guess just makes you want to get out and do something.I loved everything about your story from the characters to the awesome poems, and I found it very inspiring.

Worth reading. Nah, it's worth reading again and again :).

The poetry was really vital to the plot (and great job on it too :P) and I don't know what to say much other than...awesometastic job for bringing this to fictionpress and thanks for sharing it with everyone :D.

I like how her character is initially introverted and through her 'poetry' she inadvertently becomes more of an accepting person. Mick's funny bipolar mood swings are cool too. I can relate to her persona. Again, wonderful job here :D! Thanks again.

It's been a long time since this story was published, but I had to stop and take a second to let you know how much I enjoyed it. It was different from beginning to end and I feel like it had an actual meaning, something to take away, and that made it that much more special. I disagree with the reader that said the ending was cheesy - not at all, in my opinion. In fact it fit perfectly. I'm so glad I stumbled upon this. The poetry was beautiful and the characters were great...all in all, just a really moving story. Thanks for sharing it.

I can really relate to this story. I usually don't like poetry, but this story has convinced me otherwise!

Enjoyed this very much.
Lissya chapter 12 . 4/2/2010
Lovely poetry writing and its really nice too. It kind of reminds me of another story I read (though very different in other aspects), Eulogies and Post It Notes (or something along the lines. Its by Imaginary Parachute). Either which way, this is really lovely and great job!
the Pearl chapter 12 . 3/25/2010
I love how serene the atmosphere is all along. Especially the narrator is really calm despite how angsty her thoughts may be. A really refreshing piece. My favourite poem would be the one at the end of the seventh chapter. The relationships between the girls are portrayed in a really touching way, especially the narrator and Lorris's friendship what with their polaroid shots and painting each other. There are too many great things to mention and so I too believe everyone can get something uniequely meaningful for them out of reading this.

I actually thought that the narrator would've made a graffiti of the freshman's beautiful eyes at some point. Also I thought of the narrator sending Nelly to the drift shop to see if the owner wears the necklace... but it nice that some things are left open like that. This story reminds me somehow of Amélie actually. All around great, except the ending was too cheesy what with "Kaspar" and "Oh, Cordelia". I don't think the narrator's name was mentioned at all? Or I didn't notice it, was just left wondering after reading this. Heh.
Artume chapter 12 . 3/13/2010
This story is so freaking brilliant, I love it. Your poetry fits right in with the story, and the story is very deep. It made me think. I love how nothing is definite, whether she has changed or not, but she's taken the first step, and that's all. That's what makes the whole difference.

And I really like how you side-stepped the cliche, and I didn't even THINK Kaspar could be Mick, but it was. Congrats on such a mature, well thought-out story.
Artume chapter 7 . 3/13/2010
Really, this story is very good, and the poetry is superb. Especially this last one (where she asks Kaspar who he is, and admits she has hope). Why don't you put up all of the poems as a seperate 'story', one poem per chapter? That way, those who want to go through them can do so easily... :) PLus, it's like a story through poems, heh.
allure chapter 12 . 3/4/2010
I realize you wrote this story ages ago, but I'm just now getting around to reading. I must say, this story is beautiful. Yes, beautiful. I'm not mistaken with my choice of adjective. It was so easy to relate to "Cordelia". For a while, I felt the same teenage angst as she did. When it was time, for the story to end, I didn't want it to. Your work is brilliant...thanks for writing it!

P.S. Why did you never tell us her name?
leichan19 chapter 12 . 12/28/2009
this story is just amazing and so inspiring. I'm not usually a poetry kind of person, but I enjoyed all of their poems, especially the last one. thank you.
The Cheerio chapter 12 . 12/27/2009
This story is a jewel. Truly.

There aren't many stories that it's not only entertaining and adorable, but still so meaningful. As I retreat myself from this wonderful weave of words, I take something of worth with me as well.

Thank you, for sharing this with me.

Cordelia and Kasper have made me think, and made me smile.

Dear Robin,

YOU ARE SERIOUSLY AWESOME. The whole time I was reading your story, I felt like I was reading myself. Good job on the main character's characterization. I'm now looking forward to reading more of your works.

P.S. This chapter totally reminded me of Stephen Chbosky's Perks of Being a Wallflower. It made me feel infinite. ;) Thanks for a good read.
Spacy-Book-Nerd chapter 12 . 11/23/2009
Ok your story is just the best, and i've read a lot of stories. It was cute, charming and fun yet had a real quality about it that you don't often find in FictionPress stories.

My favorite part would have to be when Mick revealed himself as Kaspar by dumping the salt into her Vanilla milkshake. It was an idea of sheer brilliance and was so cute and out of the normal. I also liked that she didn't go out of her way to find who he was cause honestly that would have made it corny

This story is definetally a favorite of all time i just wish there was more cause it was mysterious and life inspiring with ideas that mixed the real world with the one we wish we had in just the right amounts so that people arn't scared off. Plus i can completally relate to the main character in knowing what living in "boring town" is like though i think mine is to a bigger extent considering i live in the middle of nowhere but the relating is still there.
