    I really enjoyed the information in this story, especially since it focused on a local author. The inclusion of her art work enhances the story, especially since they are pages of her book. The text was a little bit hard to read due to the size, so next time I would try and increase that so it’s legible. Otherwise nice work!

    I love how this story relates to our school through Ben, and how his mom is impacting society today. This story just gives so much information in such a little format. Very well structured!

    The article had strong information about Junior Ben Brynestads mom, helping to build the article. The quotes are very strong, and tell the backstory to the creation of the book, which is cool

    I am so glad that this story was done. The alt-copy was laid out very nicely. The background color was different which was good to see other than the traditional black or red. The quotes were really strong as well and it was cool to hear Ben’s opinion on what his mom is doing. This story also caught my attention because I had mrs. Brynestad as an art teacher. I liked the variety of artwork that was included too. Very well done.
