This is a punchy, fun beginning with an interesting premise. It has the moving back and forth of Time Travellers Wife. Some added depth to the character and the journey might make it even more vivid for the reader

I was engaged from the start and found the pacing and unique circumstances very compelling. The only glitch, for me, came with the line: "Will there be a new episode? I bloody hope so." I wasn't sure why she would be looking forward to this happening again when it seemed distressing. Other than that, I was hooked!

This is a comment from a publisher judge who asked us to post this comment:

This piece has a really interesting premise. Some of the archaicness of the prose distracts from the believable voice of a nineteen year old. We’d be curious to get a hint of the narrative problem that Dandelion’s unique condition is going to either make harder to solve, or perhaps be the only thing that could possibly solve the narrative problem. Perhaps finding the “why” of her condition is what drives the plot, but we’d like to see her unique ability solve a mystery different than just its own origin- could she be privy to family secrets? Understand some larger political plot, due to her unique movement through time?
