I can't understand how you got smash words published with no copyright announcement, no title page, the spaces between chapters was a pain! (That's a dig at Smashwords not you!)
This is a good story for teenagers... It is filled however with errors, the biggest one was the fan letter Dear Leslie, I thought she was called Sam, I had to re read in-case I missed something, and then there were lots of, probably, auto correct mistakes... ie...world renounced instead of world renowned... Simple grammatical errors, but the story was still actually okay if you ignored them!
Your own preview needs spell checking... ( She's left not knowing quite where to go next in life until she sees a newcast that a massive boyband is holding auditions for their instrumental band... she's shocked at the outcome.)
PERHAPS.... this would have been better?
As she wonders what she is going to do with the rest of her life, after being cruelly excluded from school for finally hitting back at the bullies, a local news segment she is listening to, mentions that a well known boy band is holding auditions for a backing band. Perhaps this was what God had planned for her, the outcome of the audition leaves her stunned.....
Sorry but you need someone to grammar check for you, ( As do I in my own books, being that I too am like your character, a hopeless dyslexic!)
The story is sweet and has an inspirational message for anti bullying victims, that you should change your friends and get new ones or escape them all and start a fresh, she did and because of this Sam went from feeling like she was an ugly duckling changing into a swan!
I did read to the end and decide three stars for the concept of the story...

Oh my gosh!! All I have to say is wow! Lizzie, you are an amazing writer! The first part really related to me when I was going through tough times like Sam, but now...... I mean, this story is so well written and I just love it!! I cant believe how amazing you can write! I am guessing All4U is One Direction or 5SOS. But I loved the book and you are an amazing writer!! I never knew how passionate a writer you were. Some writers write their experiences on paper, like the wheelchair thing. I mean, sure I don't know your story, but I am guessing it was very emotional, but it got a whole lot better. I am so glad you are a writer, because God has clearly called you to become a writer! Thank you for the book, I will treasure it forever! Xxx, Casey
