Title: Love You Madly
I am currently revising this manuscript, and I would love if someone could give me their overall thoughts on it beta reader style. On the flip side I am also looking for another long term critique partner, someone I can speak to on a regular basis about writing, someone who will be able to give me chapter by chapter feedback when needed. I would be happy to do the same for them.
Her entire life seventeen-year-old Christine Taylor has always looked up to her father. Now that he’s gone, she’s grief-stricken.
People don’t usually go missing in the small town of Riverdale, California, where everyone knows your first and last name. Yet, no one has seen him since the day he left for work. At first, Christine blames her momma for her father leaving them. He always said that she was the stubbornness woman he ever met.
She soon realizes that even though her momma may be stubborn, neglectful, and cruel, she’s all she’s got now. Left to pick up the pieces and take care of her sick momma whose bad habit has finally taken its toll on her, Christine is forced to grow up quicker then she intended to. If it weren’t for her friends, her boyfriend, and sweet, sweet Tommy Baker, Christine doesn’t know what she would do.
More than anything she’s afraid that she might lose her momma to her illness, because of shame she won’t take any hospital care. Her only hope for redemption is by finding out what really happened to her father the day he left for work and never came home, and by making things right with her momma. Or she might lose both of her parents without ever getting the chance to say goodbye.
