Author's Note (Actually, Editor's Note):

You guys, this is Siel's editor at your service giving technicalities on the POV issue (because Siel hates TECH and she's given me the go signal). Napansin niya ang mga dumaraming katanungan on the issue of other character's POV and we will answer it shortly.

Siel's approach to Montello High is intended to meet standards of published YA Novels. Ibig sabihin, yung writing style niya ay base sa traditional writing rules sa halip na yung mga contemporary styles na kadalasang gamit ng karamihan sa mga wattpad writers.

Napili niyang ikwento ang MHSG gamit si Summer bilang narrator sa First Person POV. So we are experiencing these events through Summer's eyes at kung ano lang ang nakikita, naririnig at nararamdaman niya ang malalaman natin. Sa standard book publishing, first person POV is written using a singular narrator kaya nag-iisa lang si Summer na nagkukwento. Traditionally, shifting POVs or POV ng ibang characters is used in Third Person POV or in novels with sub-books.

But Siel feels that the story will be better narrated by brash, sarcastic, bad-ass Summer than any other character of the book that's why she used first person POV in the first place. She does not intend to write using other character's POV. So we are not seeing any sub-books from the hot male gangsters' POVs ever either. Just enjoy Summer's thought patterns (minus her cussing siguro). [Note to Siel: Bawasan ang bad words, please]. Hope this clears things up!

Brace yourselves for future chapters and feel free to predict things but be prepared to meet doom dahil napaka-unpredictable ng story na 'to. Minsan, ayoko na siyang icopyread dahil inaatake ako sa puso. Yes, cruel si Siel at siya ang reyna ng mga cliffhanger. Konti na lang, life-ruiner na rin sya.  But rest assured na naappreciate nya maski pangungulit niyong mag-UD siya. (Kulitin niyo pa siya, please!) Er, napahaba na 'to. Bye na, baka saktan ako nun, eh!

P.S. Let's take a moment to appreciate Jin's awesomesauceness (bahala ka sa buhay mo, Van!)

Author's Note (The REAL One):

*Looks up and nods 50 times* Haha. Yeah, MUB's right. I don't do technical explanations so I just told her to just say Journalism, Creative Writing, Young Adult Novels and Literature. And I'm so amazed that she went into details. Whoa! She's frigging awesome!

Anyway, meron bang may talent dito on doing bookcovers and fanarts? I think we have a group on facebook (shocking!) so you can post it there on even on my wall. I just want to have an awesome bookcover and Adobe and I were not really on good terms. So here it is. Check out this song for this chapter because you might just find some clues:

Oh Crystal Ball - Keane

Chapter 16: Colder Farewells

He looked at me with lack of emotion after he read the note. Alam kong suntok sa buwan ang ginawa kong paglapit sa kaniya. Subalit kung iisipin kong mabuti, siya lang ang may kakayahang tulungan ako sa ganitong bagay. Alam niya ang buong senaryo higit kanino man. And among all these people around me, he was the one I was with when I got into those unfortunate troubles.

"And I thought you hate her," blangko niyang wika. I don't even know the right things to say. I may not be the best sister in the world, I'm emotionless and I lack all the feelings but I care for her. I just don't know the right way to show it.
