I took my earlier review off because I felt I should revise...
You are a great writer, Amanda, especially considering that this is your first book. It takes a lot of guts to publish something that you work so hard on and feel attached to, believe me I know.
That being said, you have to remember that there will always be people out there who have negative things to say, use these opportunities as a means to grow, listen to what people are saying... don't take it to heart, but use it, feed off of it, and get better.
So, yes, your story has a few grammatical errors, yes it's short and can use a bit of work, but you did it.
You finished a novel and published it.
Be proud of that and always remember that even the best writers had to start somewhere.
