    We must have paced those sidewalks dozens of times, ?I thought I’d never have it better. ?Songs played in my head, ?I guess they were just in mine. Somehow we’re ashes and wine, ?I can’t help but wonder why? ?We were driving down the back roads, ?Didn’t realize how far off we...

    Discontent clouds my vision and the rain blurs the lines; Yet I can’t seem to figure out why. It’s been growing now for a while, This heavy heart and this fake smile. I don’t know how much longer it’ll last- Wishing I could put this in the past. As the bottle...

    Covered in thick, hot sweat; She lay melted on the loveseat. Spring dashed by with barely a hello and sure enough the heat had settled in. A silence so stark fell upon the porch, that even the birds dare not disturb it. Dampened by sweat, she sat up and looked around. Squirrels scampered by, ...

    Blue fingertips, brown boots, and a red mind. She watched the grass tremble in the wind, the girls laugh at an inside joke she’d never understand, and the cars zoom by in a rush. Kinetic energy—the energy of motion. Everyone and thing seemed to have a grasp on it as she s...

    A sliver of light shines through the so called “blackout blinds” in Melissa’s room on a dewy Monday morning. She groans, realizing not only that the blinds she spent $40 were a piece of s***, but that her week would be no better. As she slides out of her bed in her hello kitty pajamas, her mom...

    Walking into town, No worries nearby, We take a seat on the canal. The kids trot by glancing our way, Unaffected by what affects me most. The simple days are long gone, The days of hide and seek, Where my backyard was as vast as a jungle, Where the snap of twig was the scariest thing we’d ...

    December 13th 2010 I made my way home from a long day of Christmas shopping with my mother. As I sat in the passenger seat, my mom drove on through the slush and snow that December never fails to bring. When the phone rang, she picked it up with the nonchalant attitude of a busy, working mother, but...

    After hearing such great things about this book, and seeing the newly released movie in the theatres and loving it, I finally decided to read it. However, in juxtaposition to the beliefs and support of many other readers, I walked away not totally satisfied. I had high hopes for this book and my exp...

    Although I loved that each chapter of this book were written by different characters, I found it to be a bit confusing at points and had to go back and refer to who was speaking at each time. That said- I loved the writing and each different teen perspective that was highlighted in the book. I lov...

It is based on the story of Miles “Pudge” Halter, a scrawny, cerebral teen who has a major obsession with famous last words. In search of what Pudge refers...

    Me and you, we were perfection. Like a sunny august day, not a cloud in the sky. You loved me and I loved you. Forever. Or so I thought. Something changed. The wind shifted. Suddenly, our sunny day turned to a cloudy one. And all those sweet words, all those deep conversation...

    I’ve learned a lot in my humble 15 years of existence. But in the end, the one thing that really stuck, and sunk deep in was the idea that “life goes on.” Life gets pretty shitty sometimes. People pass, hearts are broken and lessons are learned. But, life goes on. So many times...

    Cates He seems so sure. He seems to know what the verdict’s going to be. Drummond Nobody knows. (He Smiles) But, when you’ve been a lawyer for as long as I have you can normally get a pretty good idea of what the jury is thinking. Cates What are they thinking now? Drummond (In a knowing...

    When I have nowhere to go I write. Sometimes the everyday stresses of life become too much and I need to escape. I would like to run away or go where no one can touch me, but I can’t. This is my home. What is home? Some say it’s where you can be yourself and not care what people think. Some ...

    My Pen dances across the paper doing pirouettes and fondues like an elegant ballerina. It flows across the paper like water in a stream. I write to escape. When I’m writing the world is okay. I have no troubles or anything to worry about and I have all the time in the world. I write of a far aw...
