Er... maybe you could in Teen Ink? I'm not good with that, sorry :P

Why not try Will Review for Food? That's Community>Will review for food. Post on one or two people's threads and they'll review it for you. Make sure it's just one or two though - it's the forum rules (two requests every few days).

Hope I helped! :D

These lists might help your publishing search.

Also, pick up an issue of Writer's Market, by Writer's Digest. It shows a ton of markets and agents you can send your story to, in order to get published. It's a bit pricy, but very much worth it if you want to start seriously looking at publishing. Make sure you research publishers that take exactly what kind of story you're wanting to publish, so they are more likely to publish your story.

Get ready for a lot of rejection, either way. Competition is fierce, and it can take years to get the skill where you're actually publishable.
You know you're a writer when you're not alarmed at hearing voices in your head, you can't read a book without analyzing it for plot & characters and you consider something you nearly killed yourself to write the most rewarding.

Guilty as charged.

Thanks! And I know it will take me a while but this is what I want to do with my life, so I'd best get started.
