    Good stuff. It took me right back to high school.

    Fine story.

    One comment — you know that top scores on the PSAT and SAT don’t mean “perfect”? They’re just cut off at the top of the curve. It’s a common understandable misconception.

    Super setup!

    Having read one of your Monday stories awhile back, I thought we were going to have a variant of the crime clean up caper.

    Then, bang.

    Great story. Neat change of perspective.

    Thank you.

  4. Kris,
    AS always, it doesn’t matter what genre you’re writing in. If I start it, I can’t stop it. Makes it really hard to get my own writing done! 😉
