    Auden’s window is always open. It’s because his mom insists that his bedroom is always a mess, and she thinks the only way to at least make it smell okay is to ‘air out the room’. His window happens to be parallel to one in my house’s never-occupied guest bedroom. It’s empty even ...

    People say babies are gifts from Heaven. So, with that logic, we must’ve come with cards. A mental message from the angels or something. After all, what gift doesn’t come with a card? I’ll bet that right before each birth, the parents are hit with a sudden image of their baby’s grown u...

    Grandma’s tea was different from American tea. It was the real kind, the kind where you could actually see the short, pointed shape of the leaf, and if you drank it wrong, you would get a mouthful of bitterness. I hardly ever visit my grandmother. She lives in China, half a world away. I g...

    It was scary to see him again. We’d seen each other in school, of course, but that was nothing more than a: “Oh, hey.” And then a “um… yeah. Hi.” The “um… yeah. Hi” would be me. His wording was always more smooth and precise, so urbane (seventh grade vocabulary. The only reaso...

    Maybe it was because I had impossibly high hopes, or maybe I devoured this book too quickly, but as I finished the story and sat there with the book on my lap, I had this lingering sense of bewilderment, confusion, and disappointment. Just a moment. Before I go on plunging into the pros and cons...

    The second book sucked. All there is to it. The first book was awesome, amazing, but the second almost destroyed my original opinion on the Hunger Games. But I’m not here to tell you about Catching Fire. I refuse to waste one more second of my time thinking about that book. I’m here to talk...

    Lying on the couch, savoring the Crispy, Chewy, Gooey, Sugary, Melt-in-your-mouth Deliciousness of Cracker Jacks. My hand reaches instinctively For another piece The moment my mouth Stops chewing. I should stop, But I don’t. Can’t, Or won’t. I pop some in my mouth. I reall...

    I find myself lying on the ground Staring at the clear blue sky, And the floating clouds of white and gray. Birds coo around me, And something in the trees moves. The leaves rustle. The grass beneath me is prickly, And the earth beneath that is mushy and warm from the recent summer shower. ...

    A purple flower Sits on a white windowsill. Lone, but beautiful. A vibrant purple, Upon a stunning green stalk In a silver pot. The burst of color In the white hospital room Brings joy to the girl. She is alone. Unable to play outside On a sunny day. A friend sent the bloom One...

    Do you recall the proverb Aim for the stars? I do. I’ve thought about it a lot. And I often wonder… What if you have really bad aim, And you miss, And you end up drifting futilely in space, In life? Would you be content to know You tried? Or would you curse yourself And you bad aim?...

    How is it That I manage To ruin everything In a Single night? Okay. Maybe not Ruin, But screaming at a dog Because I’m mad at my dad And making the dog sulk (I didn’t even know dogs COULD sulk) And making the neighbors think I ’m insane Is Pretty bad. And maybe not EVE...

    Sometimes when an author squeezes a ton of different genres into one book, it turns into a complete mush, like when you combine a lot of pretty colors and end up with an icky brown. But then, sometimes it's like combining gorgeous colors to get a rainbow. That describes Graceling. I won't spil...

    All through the summer Becky had wondered what high school would be like. Everyone seemed to have different opinions. Some said that high school was a blast, and some complained that it was the most miserable few years of their life. To be honest, she was looking forward to her freshman year. In...

    It was one of those days that you were slightly glad that everything was normal, but wished that “normal” was different. Like, for instance, you were yelling at your classmate and he was yelling at you and it was two days before the due date of a huge project, and you guys hadn’t gotten anyth...
