Hello Ladies. Anyone here have a moment (or a few, actually) to spare? I am looking some feedback on the 10th chapter of my YA Silent Voices. It is written from a omniscient third-person narrative, focusing on one or two of the for MCs feelings (or silenced voices) in each chapter.

Silent Voices: Flowers and Flirts

It would be very kind of you to give me any positive, negative or constructive feedback you may be willing to share. Thank you very much in advance! :)
