I can picture just sitting beside this kid as she rambles on about her story, about her stinky brother, and her odd parents. She sounds like she loves her ma and pa, just doesn't know what to make of them half the time.

So wonderfully written... and I can hear their heavy accents and think their thoughts and those metaphors are the best!

Nice character voice, and you're doing it well. Dialects can be tough, but you're handling it.
When you come to the humor section but end up feeling nothing but melancholy 😔
Hey, would you like to enter our awards? It'd be great if you did.
First chapter and I get a glimpse of these brothers' lives. Wanna read more. :)
