This is a game based on a 400-700 word short story (I ended up just under the word limit with 697!) that I wrote for my 8th grade English class, which I've expanded to make into a CYS. It's about a freshman on their second day of high school making a friend, and dealing with bullies. There are 31 pages, 14 endings (6 good, 3 neutral, 5 bad), and even a new branch that you're one of the bullies.

This story is relatively short; the length of one playthrough varies from 3 to 10 pages (roughly 250 words per page). I figured a short storygame would suit me better after my 372-page storygame got an average rating of 3/8!

Maturity Level: I've said 3/8 as young children may find it scary, but this is actually about teenagers.

This honestly might be one of the better school based stories, but it's just not a genre I can get very excited about. The grammar is fine--he even got the dialogue punctuation right--and while the plot is basically just a typical thing about a kid that goes to school and makes a friend or deals with bullies, there's a decent number of choices. The writing itself is also pretty clear and decently done.

There's really nothing wrong with this, except that I just don't find the story events very interesting, and this is generally not a popular category on the site for a reason. (I'm not sure if even high school kids like reading about ordinary high school kids...)
