Magazine, website & books written by teens since 1989


I linger in this moment
Where winter tries to find me
it takes what is mine
How I long to be free
Clawing at my skin it gives me new flesh
A monster in this world
I have only one comfort now
She's my summer girl.

Haha. I think we have a lot in common, because I love the book Shiver. Maggie (can't spell her last name) is a genius author. (Have you read her new one Linger... very good sequel??)

So my advice: This is so close to the book it's nearly copywriting. Sorry. You stole whole lines from the book. She's my summer girl. For example, that's directly out of the book. BE CAREFUL!!! It didn't seem like this piece was inspired by the book, but taken from the book.

I'm not familiar with the novel "Shiver," but this is very insightful and witty!
