This is really good! Your description and wording was so well described. And I pictured the scene at the dinner table like a movie. Really well detailed! :)

Excellent! The plot is awesome and I love how you started the story. It's slightly cliche but the Ballet part takes away most of it. Most stories like this would've started with a flashback and I'm glad you didn't. Great start. Voted! ^_^

Excellent start, you deal with some very tough and real issues that it really brings home a visceral feeling. You can certainly write well in first person!
