Tough ending! It read like a real story. If this is fiction, you're a fantastic fictional writer.
My favorite parts of your story were the descriptions. I could picture the shops, the people, the situations, and most importantly - the struggle! I can relate.
In fact, I openly cheered when your father bought the house and moved into a better home!
Exceptionally well written: excellent descriptions, good grammar, story, and overall enjoyable read. I look forward to reading another one of your stories. Thank you for sharing!
