Miss Snark's First Victim
I'd keep reading. This made me smile.
Not hooked. Who WOULDN'T be tired of working in a field picking cotton and corn and tobacco? Maybe if it started out with more description of the "tired"...
Yes, definitely hooked.
Oh, yes, I'm hooked. I really like this one and wish there had been more to read.
Hooked. Good job of showing immediately what the story is.
I think you set up context really well but I'm not hooked. I know it's a letter but it's "telling." Which is a point of a letter, but if I were a kid, would I care?
Not really hooked. Sad, but not hooked. I'm sorry.
Not hooked, sorry. It feels a bit too forced as a set-up and information.
The letter format serves as a bit of an 'As you know, Bob.'info dump. The voice comes across as whiny too, which doesn't help me care for your MC.
