    Two miniature ladies stood in line, gabbing away about their time at the gym earlier. The expensive membership at LA Fitness was about the only thing these women spoke to each other about. “I did 45 minutes on the weight machine,” gloated the brunette to her friend. She flipped her hair, bu...

    Take a look at a teenager. A good, educated look. Don’t look at the piercings that dot their ears, the colorful hair, or the revealing clothing that you would get a belt to the butt if you wore as a teen. If you do look at these things, it’s called stereotyping. Yes, not all stereotyping is ...

    Remember when the leaves changed colors On those cool fall nights Three children laughed and played Racing under bright street lights Remember when the leaves changed colors And sweaters came, but were never on The crisp air bit their noses But they didn’t mind Remember when the leave...

    Breathe. That’s all I have time to think about. In and out. In and out. I can barely move because of the pain. In and out. In and out. A strangled cry escapes my chapped lips, whoops. A tear blurs my vision. In and out. In and out. No crying, just breathing. In and out. In and out. ...

    My old 1998 baby, Ruth, knew we were home. She plopped herself down in that driveway and spluttered a content sigh of relief; the cracked concrete has been worn to her skinny tires. This time, it was my turn to sigh, but not a sigh of relief. A sigh of dread. This house may be good for my Ruth, ...

    Millions of African people were shipped in hazardous conditions out of their homeland and into the harsh hands of American slave owners, who beat them for speaking their mind and lashed out all thoughts against the order of that age’s society. After the Civil War, things got altered for the best,...

    “Leah, will you go around and pick up all the safety goggles?” Ms. Brown screeched into the talkative class of 8th graders. A small girl with petite lips and hair pushed back with a green headband stood up from her chair in the back of the classroom and started doing the teachers request. He...

    Dear Ms. Matthews, I’m a tiny number that sits above an integer, not taking up much space, but still I am strong. So strong, in fact, that I can make 2 into 33,445,532 with the right value. Have you guessed what I am yet? Yes, I know it might take a while, considering how little people pay ...

    Evolution, you may only think of it as apes into humans, but it’s actually much more. It’s when organisms have grown and developed from earlier beings. Humans have evolved from the Native Americans we read about in text books, to the society we are today. There are many different forms and sta...

    This book was extremely intriguing, but before I go into the book, I feel the author needs some recognition. Haddix is a terrific writer. She draws out sci-fi stories, historical fiction, fantasy, and even some young children books. I have to say, she has excelled in every one of them. This is...
