    I never like complaining about a piece of writing, but “The Magic Direction Box” by Hannah Craig might have been the most pointless, confusing, nonsensical fiction story I have ever read in an issue of Teen Ink. I wasn’t sure if it was supposed to be that way, or I just completely missed the ...

    Imagine you’re on line in a supermarket, loading bottles of soda and bags of chips onto the conveyor belt. You’re about to purchase these goodies for a party, so you pull out your old, raggedy wallet. As you open it, you hear the sound of the leather squeaking, and see the cash is missing. Go...

    While reading April’s issue of Teen Ink, I found some issues that I was surprised about. Typos? In Teen Ink? Apparently so. I understand it’s the author’s job to edit the mistakes in their piece, but Teen Ink is a nationwide magazine read by millions of teens, with professional editors lik...

    Reading “Fast-Food Nation” by “Allison” made me want to flip my table. Her support of fast-food restaurants was at first odd, but as the article went on, it made me outright outraged. She even had the nerve to make statements like “Simply put, the U.S. is the greatest country on Earth, and...

    In his poem “Where Do Babies Come From?” Thomas E. describes various myths in the first 26 lines of this simple, lyrical piece of writing with rhyme and near-perfect flow. The poem has rhyming couplets, with each line describing a made-up story of the origin of babies. For instance, “Magic gen...

    It’s Los Angeles in 1947 – a city filled with crime where everyone has his or her secrets. And it’s up to you to put an end to it. L.A. Noire, released in May 2011, gives you that opportunity when you are put in the shoes of detective Cole Phelps, an ex-Marine now part of the LAPD. This sin...

    Victor Morrison’s “A Love Affair with Orange Juice” was relatable and a whimsical play on a mushy love poem. He did a great job of using sensory details, expressing his love for the healthy beverage, like a love-struck teenager would do in a confessional poem. I found myself chuckling as I r...

    things don’t die or remain damaged but return: stumps grow back hands, a head reconnects to a neck, a whole corpse rises blushing and new elastic. Later this vision is not True: the grandmother remains dead not hibernating in a wolf’s belly. The bell rang as I jotted this ...

    “My Father’s Name is #3022” by Jack Solls touched me emotionally. The author really let me into his head, and gave me insight on what it feels like to have to explain that he was conceived through artificial insemination. As what he called “genealogical bewilderment” overwhelmed him, he ...

    Prior to reading “Youth Lack Life Skills” by Brielle Black, I hadn’t really thought of “life skills” as being a school subject. But now I realize how important things like sewing and cooking are. The article explains that, today, teenagers don’t have life skills, hence the name. About...

    I was extremely taken aback by “I’m Sorry, Eric” by Avi Lurie. It really spoke to me how much the issue of bullying is changing in this society. The author describes how his best friend, Eric, who was like a brother to him, moved away and was bullied. The same year that Avi visited him, Eri...

    You hear noises and voices that you shouldn’t be hearing. Doors are opening and the piano is playing. Suspicious things are happening. You thought these problems were solved a long time ago. Insidious: Chapter 2 will make you feel like these incidents are actually occurring. The Lambert famil...

    Bigotry is still an issue in our society ­today, and Hillel Zand makes this point clearly in “Pride and Prejudice.” He explains that he is constantly the victim of slurs and harmful jokes about his religion. He proves that bullying can do a lot to a person. In the first paragraph, he states tha...
