Falling Apart to Gain More

I wrote this to get into Honour's 9 Comp/Lit last year. I made it, and passed the class. I don't know if the story is any good, my teacher seemed to love it, but I just would like to know what others think. Thank you for reading.

It is a fictional story that I came up with about a tragedy that would change a life.
The assignment we had got was to write a story about something tragic that changed my life forever.

I named it "Falling Apart to Gain More" because you fall apart after a death of someone you love but you can gain more by filling that empty hole you have in your heart by discovering a new thing.
  1. Enough to Save Yourself
    This is the only part of the story.
