I always like positive characters. But I guess somewhere I agree wth you on this point too. This much of postivity is a bit too much for me to digest as well :)

From just reading the sample I knew that I wouldn't like Debbie. She came off as too spoiled, and she just seemed to dismiss the fact that her mom died when she young. Now, she is 26 and everything is ok? I can't relate to this character, I am very fortunate to still have both parents and if I lost one when I was young I would probably be a little different, even at the age of 25 because of the event.

I did not dislike her character I don't believe there is anything wrong with knowing that one lives a pampered life or lifestyle. Plus she had around thirteens years to come to terms of not having her mother around as well, like her mother's death in general. Therefore, I do not altogether see her attitude as being overall dismissive.

I like Debbie because she's a teacher, and feel like she's well grounded because of this. I don't understand how she could have left her teaching job to go to Florida, but I feel the writer didn't think this detail out.
