the things you might experience living your life.

Chapter 1

When you are a baby, you are so small. it seems you don’t know... anything at all. but you learn so fast... everything is new. but it can’t last... That is true. Soon you will grow up. To be a child... But that will not be mild.

When you are a child.. you learn and you play. Through sunny and cloudy... you spend your days. Making friends and seeing what’s new. Life’s an adventure... That is so true.. Drift into imagination.. Dream your dreams... And even plan your schemes.. Then you will grow into a teen..

When you are a teen... Everything seems so strange... You might want to date... it’s hard to change... People seem interesting to love... But keep moving until you reach the stars above... Stay strong and true So many things are waiting for you... When you grow to be an adult... You may not see any fault...

When you are an adult... You might drive a car... Get a job, and go so very far.... So many things to do... You will be busy... It’s not going to be easy... You can still have fun... Even though it can be hard... Keeping up with your life... Finding a husband or a wife... You will see... Maybe you will even have a family...

When you have a family... You can see them grow... Helping them and getting to know... They will go through so many things... Being happy and sad... Its like growing wings... Love your family with all your heart.... It’s not a hard thing to start... See the stages they go through... Know they are different, yet the same as you... Yet this is not the end... Life will go on... Like an endless song.... Changes and struggles will come... Show people just where you are coming from.... You will try hard to belong.... Making friends can sometimes be hard... But stay strong and keep your word... Remember the happy times, and learn from the bad... Know you will feel both happy and sad.... It’s OK to feel everything you feel... You can enjoy life, and know that it’s real... The years had passed, hope you made the good memories last

It was gripping even for an adult reader. I would recommend a thorough and close edit to reveal the full potential of this very good book.

Sarah Luongo: I'm a big fan of the format of the book- the concept of incorporating poems and within the story and sectioning off periods of the story with each poem. It made it easier to read, and made the unimaginable easier to comprehend. What some people may skip over may be the most important part in this...

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life.

deathpunk187: your style of writing with the poems is very interesting the way you seem to bring emphasis to certain words and lines in the poem, I definitely could feel the emotion coming out of it and I definitely relate to them on a personal level. please don't stop writing!

jenneyescoto: I'm only six chapters in, yet I'm already hooked. It didn't start too slow nor too fast. It has just enough background information to keep the plot going in a decent pace. There are just some minor grammar mistakes and phrasing that could be easily corrected. Other than that, I'm really enjoying ...
