"A compelling piece of paranoia with subtle imagery scattered throughout.It's interesting to note how obsessed the main character is with the image she projects to the world because this is an issue many people face, especially teenage girls. " -- Kev.
"Very impressed.Harriet should definately consider writing more novels." -- Ezmerelda.
"Simply remarkable! Not boring by any means. I found myself being both entertained and enlightened, which are the primary ingredients in any great body of literature. Keep up the magnificence." -- Michael.
"A truly delightful read and solid piece of work, the honesty shines through making this narrative powerful and profound! Correct the gramatical errors and submit this to a teen mag and you just may be surprised at the response. Keep up the good work, you writing reflects you have found your inner voice and are destined for greater things ahead. You show incredible insight for your age. Good job!!! " -- Monte, USA.
"Wow, I really enjoyed this piece. I, too, think you could write easily for teen mags. The last line struck a chord with me, strangely enough, as I've just submitted a poem called "From Darkness to Light." Weird or what? Keep it up, Kiddo! Stan. A. Fowler." -- Stan. A. Fowler.
"Very much enjoyed the journey through this young girl's psyche. I agree, you are a force to be reckoned with. Do you have anything paper-published yet ??? Now I feel a little better about your critique of my story "Exqusite Agony"!! At least you know how to write !!! Did you read my other humble offering "Critters"? Would like your opinion there." -- Judi, Tampa, FL, USA.
