Feedback : As for the story itself, its failure to be either realistic or allegorical is striking. Absolutely nothing interesting happens. And the sexual event at the end is more like an inevitable ending of things once the characters have reached teenage. Very disappointed – this story could have done better with a couple of more months of work.
