"Hey, so-and-so!Wow, this is pretty good for your age. I didn't really expect something like this from such a young writer!Since you are so young, I won't go into all the nitty-gritty parts of this review. I just want to let you know that there are some errors here and there! (I'm sure you can go over and find them yourself.)There are a few things that I didn't like, but I'm sure that you'll discover those soon enough!

But still, would saying this hurt the writer?
