I hated it. It was just plain BAD.

What the heck does this have to do with A Wrinkle in Time? I don't see any connection. You also have a lot of typos. You should fix them and move this to another category.

Pros: Not much.

Cons: Almost everything.

Your sentences were very short. You have no description and a limited vocabulary to match your limited knowledge. You have no sense of grammar what-so-ever and the whole story could use a few hundred words.

Your plot is pathetic and your characters are... well, not that good.


"Mark, give it back meany!" [Unrealistic. What pathetic loser of a teenaged girl says 'meany'?]

"Heather, no." [Unrealistic. He sounds like a parent.]

"Mark, that was mean, and my nose isnt large, my face just hasnt grown to fill my nose." She says while holding her nose. [Instead of a period after 'nose', it should have been a comma. And the dialogue isn't very believable.]

"Now look what you'v done Heather. You broke it!" [Missing an 'e'.]

"Well maybe I woulnt of broke it if you wouldnt have called my nose large!" [Contraction fail.]

I would go on, but I'll spare you.

Advice: Delete. Or rewrite. But seriously... Change it.
