  1. Hello Amelia,
    I found your story very interesting not only because of your use of speech to help the reader understand the thinking of your characters but because it also deals with an important issue. We sometimes do things we later regret. Well done.

    Fortunately, Evie was able to escape the frozen waters. It made me wonder if perhaps Lucas was able to help without realising he could but that could be a mystery power of a spirit animal.
