    You’d taken showers with your older sister since you both listened to the same bo-po-mo-fo recordings over congee in the mornings. It’s more efficient, said your mother. Two at once gets the job done. This is the same logic she used when she just erased your sister’s answers from SAT books ...

    Expulsed from a womb on a hazy Sunday morning, she began as an entropic, nebulous sprat (with a distinctly strident panache) who danced through the crayon-strewn floors of kindergarten, hacked through swathes of math worksheets until she reached high school (the land of queen bees and lovely, sweet ...

    In the fading light, the old man looked at his son. “You think I'd lie to you? Son, all you need to wear a hat is attitude. And you got that. You think I'd tell you you looked good if you didn't? You look real sharp. You don't believe me?” – Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys Washington winters ar...

    On Anita's desk, 12/15, 6:06 p.m.: About 35 blank, folded printer-paper cards with names written in the corners with light pencil; statistics, history, and biology textbooks nearly hidden by the cards; a calendar marking today as the first day of winter vacation; a half-full cup of oolong tea, luke...

    “Run for your lives,” they say. They mean, “Run for your souls,” for nothing else is so revitalizing. I. Ashley The morning sun claws its way into Ashley's bedroom, splinters of light prodding her awake. Ashley groans. Wednesday. Ten-mile day. The two-week Alaskan cruise did w...

    “Hey, want to make avocado bread?” “Sure,” I answer, and my sister and I whirl into a baking frenzy with a flurry of sifted flour and a smear of mashed avocado. Twenty minutes later, we have beaten, whisked, and mixed to our hearts’ contents; the bread is in the oven, the timer is set, an...

    I believe teenagers are invincible. We are as the rain: an unstoppable deluge, a flood; every drip is accidental, yet undeniably correct. On days when the wispy clouds are half-heartedly resisting the sun’s burn, all teenagers hear the call: a reminder that there are places other than the back o...

    Everybody is self-conscious. That’s not a question or an opinion. It’s the truth. Everyone cares about what other people think. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be human. After all, society is everything to us. Friends. Company. Community. Describe yourself. Better yet, ask someone else to de...

    It seems like everyone is criticizing the Twilight series. And not for good reasons, either. Bad writing, bad plot, anti-feminist message, shallow, marketing inappropriate things to young girls. But let’s take a closer look at all this. There have been arguments that Twilight gives false hope t...

    In Going Bovine, Libba Bray delves into the sarcastic, skeptical, “couldn't-care-less” mind of Cameron Smith, a teenager who essentially has to save the world in order to save himself. Does this book have action? You bet. Drama? There's some. Romance? Check. Crazy people who live in a utopia...

    What is “drip”? Does the word “drip” refer to the sound the water makes as it lands in the sink? Or does it mean that a droplet is falling? Is it the result or the path that holds the meaning? Or is it all meaningless? Pauline does not know how it started. I don’t either. But knowing h...

    “Starving artist” is an accurate term for me and for you. Of course, when people say this with a patronizing smirk, they never say what we are starving for. If we starved for food, we would not be artists. Instead, we are starving for color and words and lights. We crave the exhilaration of find...

    The light is too bright, the water is too hot, and the pain is much too wrenching to be for my own good. Quietly, I watch Mama twist my feet to make me the most beautiful girl in the Middle Kingdom. My feet are soaked in scalding water, herbs, and blood, and meticulously scrubbed until they are the ...

    Imagine that you are a 15 year old boy from Mali. You come back from the communal well, carrying some water for your younger sister to wash in, and you see your mother talking to a strange, stocky man. Your mother looks at you and immediately looks away. The man, however, looks at you up and down, i...

    Rain has personalities; today it flops limply to the sidewalk as if the trip from the cloud to the ground is immeasurably exhausting. I stomp up the hill with my sister, holding my bright blue umbrella over us. The rain slides languidly off the umbrella in small rivulets. The dismal weather give...

    The thousands of immigrants who flocked to American shores heeding the Statue of Liberty’s famous call for “huddled masses yearning to breathe free” (Lazarus) envisioned the Land of the Golden Mountain, the Land of the Free, a refuge to escape from oppression. America has always been known as ...

    My family is Chinese. Anyone can tell by our straight black hair, brown eyes that minimize when we smile, and my parents' insistence that their kids grow up to be prodigies and/or doctors. Also, we buy out the entire rice section if rice is ever on sale. We are not out of the ordinary. Right now,...
