Observations: I adored this story, mainly because I was scared to death when that kid was about to jump. I sure didn't see that coming and it made my heart race.
I loved his inner thoughts as he hopes Julie is watching him do push ups.
I thought the kid was believable and well depicted and the supportive sister was great too.
My only beef--and it's not huge--is that they called 911. He's got a hurt ankle. She could have driven him. Ambulances are expensive and it wasn't an emergency. But other than that, it was a fantastic story!
