I absolutely loved this story! It was well-written, unpredictable and interesting. You made it seem so real with the time gaps and the characters' decisions. Amazing job on this :)

I'm already hooked! Your first chapter is awesome and I can't wait to read more :)

This story was amazing.
The last chapter was the first time I read the authors note and I saw you were only 15 when you started. I am speechless for someone so young to write such an amazing story. Your the same age as me and I could never write something so great like this. I honestly say this from the bottom of my heart that you need to become a published writer because if you don't the world is missing out. :)

You have a real talent! I did notice the grammatical errors every now and then, but otherwise, great storytelling :] The characters really breathe.

I cannot believe on how great this story is, but so much lacking in the review department! It needs much more reviews to show how great this story is!
Avis and Wes has made laugh, smile, grin like crazy, and feeling hurt at the same time. Their relationship has a whole lot of depth, and you have successfully writing it in a fabulous fashion.
The characters are deep, and I salute you for that. Although, I suggest you to improve more on that side. I'm sure it will be tons greater. Not too much drama, though!
I have to admit, I almost stopped reading this story about halfway. It's because of the separation thingy. Well, to tell you the truth, I hate that kind of drama. But somehow, you pulled me back on. And I loved it.
I love the way you depicted their relationship, especially the last chapter, which I think, is sickeningly sweet and amazing. My favourite chapter amongst all.
The plotline, although overall it's not something totally new or something groundbreaking, you wrote it in a way that makes people keep smiling like crazy, or gasp in agony. You made it not seemingly cliche, and I give you two thumbs up for it.
I rarely give reviews, although I have read practically hundreds of good stories in Fictionpress, but I never have the urge to write comments, except when they're really, I mean, really outstanding. And this is, by far my longest review ever here.
Keep up the good work, and I'll be watching you *I sound like a creepy stalker! lols*

Their story is adorable. I loved every word of it.

A very well written story and I must say I was a little shocked you started writing this when you were fifteen. I feel like I know Avis and Wesley really well, lol. I nearly squealed when I read the last part. It was a good idea that you did it from the view of the reporter and we could see their behaviour and actions from another point of view. Anyway, a great story. I've read some of your other stuff and they are realy really good :)

Wow. I hate to sound demeaning to fifteen year olds, but boy I wouldn't have expected this kind of writing from them. Beautiful piece.
I was wary of this before I began resding since my story has the whole celebrity theme (it has musiciand, socialites basically the whole lot) but yeah its motivated me to write more so thank you.
Favourited. I'll be sure to re-read it.

This: "As Avis stared at herself in the mirror, she wasn't quite sure whether she had gone batshit crazy or not." is perfect.
"Being pushed harshly into the corner, she almost screamed but a hand covered her mouth. It was Wes." Oh my! Quite the aggressor, no?
I like how when John is comparing himself to Wes he is like, "I'm not a movie star, I don't wear jeans with a million holes in it..." because to John, the essential nature of Wes is that a) he is an actor and b) he wears jeans with a million holes in them. This is just funny and also something I think a very observational/witty person would say.

Oh my, if I was having a fight with my sister and she promised someone else that I'd go on a blind date I don't know if I could be as accomidating as Avis!
Her favorite store is Urban Outfitters? Girl needs to upgrade to Anthropologie!
John seems nice, though I'm guessing he is going to get hurt in this scheme of Avis's...

How are you? I don't know if you remember me, but I was formerly The Catnapper, and according to my reviews page, I last reviewed your story in May 2009! Oh my how time flies! I've started a new story involving actors and movie making, and I'm sure you were somewhere in my jumble of inspirations, as I have quite a fondness for Avis and Wes.
Anywho, I thought I'd see how they ended up! Here goes:
This: "Pots and pans were all over the place and the sink was threatening to burst with the amount of dishes that were in there." is lovely.
I wish my mother dressed like a 50's housewife! I quite like that look.
Oh bother, Avis and Autumn are fighting, and I've forgotten why!
"Smells wafted out of the kitchen and she returned with a platter of cheese and appetizers." Were the smells good? Or bad? What specfically, etc. A few details would work wonderfully here.
When Avis is talking on the phone to Annalise, her name is accidently written as 'Autumn' right after Avis says "...I was talking to Autumn."
Your sense of humor comes through nicely in this chapter, and it flows with ease and is quite entertaining!

I am only going to say one thing:
And now I'll shut up :)
| Mary Chrys chapter 25 . 3/23/2010
Well, I started reading this story last night and finished it today. Haha. I love it. I'm shocked that you're only seventeen, because your writing seems very mature, in tone and diction. I mean, I'm seventeen myself, but still.
Great work. (

It was fantastic. Why do I get the feeling of it not being a cliche, when it really kinda is? Oh well, one for originality )
