    Sam sat watching the new girl stride into the classroom. Her face betrayed no fear, but an open honesty that told you she had none. “I’m Kate,” she said to the silent class. “This is my first day here.” “You don’t say,” said Sam’s friend Rob. Laughter broke out at the jibe. ...

    Sophie, It’s taken me a long time to write this letter. At first all I could think about was the huge sister-shaped hole in my life, the pain of having you wrenched away from me. The wide shock on your cold face. The parting of your blood-stained lips. The way your pretty green eyes turned...

    Sometimes it’s hard to know why I’m still living. Especially on days like these. Days filled with tireless disappointment; punctured with fear and hope and expectation; littered with dirty lies and rumours. I remember one of these days very clearly. It was January 7th, and snow was jus...

    In Steinbeck’s much analysed and lonely novella Of Mice and Men, the characters are seen to experience solitude, frustration, despair, limitations – and ultimately, tragedy for all involved. Although the novella is very much a tragic tale of two disadvantaged migrant workers struggling for their...

    The smell is the first thing I notice. Invisible and lingering, it curls on the edges of my soul, choking the oxygen beating freely in my lungs. She isn’t so lucky. Who would ever imagine a lump of medical equipment replacing your own breath, pumping your body because you can’t? The wires, too. ...

    You hear the lash of the crack You feel the smooth stench of rock You draw in your nostrils You pitter-patter on your feet You work around the clock. You dress a little smarter You wear your hair out Pressed and smooth You tighten your laces You clear your throat to shout. You see the...

    The days still feel raw, uneven. The unsettled beat of my heart persists, but my soul is lost. My tongue is trapped inside the roof of my mouth, and the words do not come. It doesn’t matter that mum cries or Isabel, my seven-year-old sister, begs me to talk. It doesn’t matter that my ex-best fri...

    For me the attic was always a mysterious, enchanting, almost magical place. But this particular time aged eleven was somehow dark. My bare feet padded and creaked as I tripped up the attic steps, the veins pulsing in my neck as I prised the cover off the ceiling lid, clambered in, and screwed ...

    They’re the only ones standing in the way of freedom. Your heart is thrumming like a bird in your chest, ready to leap out and fly away. You tell yourself you won’t let them hold you back anymore. You need to get away, be independent, begin a new life away from here. The black shadows under your...
