Without You:
You've lost almost everything at this point. Your biological father, he was gone before he came into your life. Your mother, she died not to long ago. Now, you've lost your boyfriend, Jacob. This was love. You're 16, and you've lost him, her, and him again. However, you're trying to cope.

There are lots of people to help you out. Hunter's been in the same situation, and he really likes you. Bailey is a good friend, and she'd love ot help. And a mysterious dream guy wants to help, too...

This is basically an introduction. It's the first two days of being in school without Jacob. You meet Hunter, get to know Bailey, and yourself. You also have an option to meet the mysterious attractive guy.

I was interested in the story up until Hunter randomly kissed the narrator. It seemed force and unnatural. It could have worked out if you would have made them a bit more awkward about it; if Hunter played it off coolly and said he didn't know what came over him (or something along those lines). And on top of all that, the game ended so soon. I never even got to know this "mystery guy" when I played the second time.

Overall, it was written well and the characters were somewhat interesting---but there needs to be a lot more work put into it! I think I can tell that you rushed through it by the end. You must have started this up for fun and then abandoned the project out of nowhere.

I hope one day you take up another and keep it going, because you have potential, in my opinion!

Well your writing is great and I really enjoyed this story. There are only a couple of things that irked me a bit.
1. The way the the teenagers talk is the same as your writing style, and I've never known a teenager to talk like that. They sound like really upper class, sophisticated, middle aged adults and it just doesn't feel like they're teenagers.
2. The girl just seems a little too tragic for me. I feel sorry for the character because her boyfriend died, but making both her parents dead aswell doesn't make me feel more sorry for her, it just makes the character seem less realistic.
That said, I think it was a really well written story and I'm looking forward to part 2. ^_^

The sudden kiss from Hunter felt completely unwarranted. YA fiction commonly sweeps this behavior under the rug. Don't do that. If you're going to include this, make it completely clear that it's unacceptable behavior - not that it's just "too early to move on".

The complete nihilism coming off of the narrator makes the character fall almost completely flat. An entirely tragic character isn't going to take off all that well. I do understand that this is the first in the series, but this protagonist needs a bit more flavor than salted tears.

Maybe include one chapter of prologue from the perspective of Jacob, just before his death. I think showing the sort of lackadaisical nature of Jacob - /especially/ if he wasn't all that into the narrator from the get go. Wouldn't do it right away, though - this would be almost exclusively for some end game closure.

Grammar, and spelling - proofread, have a friend do so as well.

Uh.. This story doesn't really have a good plot.. It doesn't really develop that much, and I noticed a couple of spelling errors.
