Well, you have definitely left behind the content of those earlier-loved children's books. I am loving each chapter, though, just the same. It feels like you have started upon the last leg of the story, but you haven't been leaving any quality behind.
Author's Response: Thank you for your review, and your kind words. You're right that we're starting on the last leg of the story; I have everything that will happen already planned out, though I haven't written it yet. By my reckon, we should have four, maybe five chapters left to go, depending on how much I happen to write for each story beat and how I break the chapters up. Look forward to it! :)

To be perfectly honest, this story has some features which usually belong to very predictable stories.
You have managed to get me totally guessing. Your setting reminds me of a few well-loved books that I read when I was very young, and your characters have a glorious depth to them that makes them feel very real. The cat's result was superbly foreshadowed. If Em's transition seems too successful, you have managed to wrangle that from dream worthy to curiosity inspiring. I am looking forward to seeing how these characters unroll their stories together.
Author's Response: Thank you for the review, and thanks for the input. I hope you will enjoy the next chapters too! :)

I am so glad you decided to continue this story. I don't know where it is headed, but I really like your writing style. Everything seems so natural. The pacing, the detail, the dialogue are all spot on.
I thought I detected a little foreshadowing when Frank experienced a twinge of regret at being labeled a friend, not a boyfriend. I guess we'll see.
Thank you for continuing.
Author's Response: Thank you for your review and encouragement! I'm glad you're enjoying the story so far.
