Author's Note

This book is written in verse so it is not quite a novel but also not a poem. There will be a few grammatical issues and feel free to point them out, however, some of them are intentional for poetic reasons. Please give your opinion on the plot of the book, if it is interesting or not, and the writing style. Also, how would you rate this book and would you recommend it to someone? And if you read the description but didn't want to read the book, why did you decide not to read it? I'd like to know how I can improve.

Well, I guess I kind of need to apologize for not reviewing some of the chapters, but I was honestly captivated by your work.
I think, while the plot may be a bit cliche, it's a fresh and original story at the same time. A lot of people write about car accidents and the guilt that comes with it. But you put a nice twist on it that's refreshing really.
I love how you're using a new style of writing, prose but not prose. I thinks it's a clean way to express what Riley's feeling. I haven't finished reading all of it, but I think it's fantastic.
I don't think I've seen any grammatical errors, so you're good on that.
I'm not trying to sound like a much too enthusiastic and supportive person, but I'd give this like 200/100 because it's just beautiful work in a new fashion of writing. I like it, I really do.
