I like this.

The concept is good and there is some suspense, which keeps you reading. I like the idea of the economic pressure to enter the games.

Your characters were okay, but lacking a little depth, I feel, especially your protagonist. Perhaps if she had a sister to be jealous of, or her Father was dead/divorced. Something like that.

Still, a good effort.

I love this story already because you can tell it's well developed and the characters are established. And I've a pet peeve about character names being too thought out sometimes, as if an author has gone out of their way to create originality, but yours are beautiful :)

I mean, Rory Griffin? Ah, love. Haha, I know that's silly.

Yeah, I've been pretty busy on this story =P but it's all the better. I type them up on Google document so I can log into gmail and keep them even if my computer crashes, so i'm not sure.
Yeah, the majority of my stories are in past tense and I prefer it, too, until I started reading present tense. I decided I had to...broaden my to speak, and wrote this in present.

Maybe I'll make a revised version for you people who like past. =P When I've got time.

Wow! You got a lot done! 17 chapters! How many pages is your story in Word!!!

constructive criticism: maybe you could change your story's tense from present to past (but that's just a personal preference).

Arya- Technically it's not, it's just a similar concept. but thanks for the compliment =P
