Hey everyone, I'm looking for feedback on a book I've written. You can find it at http://centre58.com/StudentSite.html . Let me know what you think!

Thank you very much, Stephanie, for sharing this with us. I've only had a chance to read a few paragraphs, but look forward to reading much more and perhaps making a few comments if it seems like a good idea.

I try to read slowly when I am enjoying something, so I am only at Chapter Four and hoping to finish what you have posted tomorrow. My daughter writes books as well in a similar style. One thing that I like about both your writing styles is that you explain and resolve situations quickly. Also you both create main characters that are very likable. You both write in a fine way and everything moves along very smoothly.

I am enjoying reading these chapters and look forward to reading more. I'm glad that you have chosen dance as part of the teenage world to write about.

I finished your post, Stephanie. I enjoyed it and thank you. Is it possible to read the rest?

PS--I also watched the complete "Grease" on television for the first time last night before starting your book. Both made for a very pleasant evening.

I just read your profile, Stephanie. You have actually been a dance teacher for fifteen years. Your writing had me believing that you were an actual teenage like your characters. Good job!

PS--If you missed my above post, is it possible to read all of your book?

Thanks for your comments! I'm keeping the rest off the internet because I don't want my material scalped... right now I'm just looking for initial feedback!
