That first paragraph is just, no.

You can write but you've posted far too much to read. Cut it and separate the paragraphs. Get rid of the first one though, imo.

For me there's far too much dialogue in the first and third chapter. Sorry, but I just got bored reading it. Then the part where she was told her mother was in hospital just didn't ring true. Surely...

3.99 is still quite high for a kindle edition of a writers debut book. I reckon you'd need a monumental beginning to get me to part with my cash. I am fairly mean though :)
