    When I saw him that night his face looked like a caricature of Stephen Hawking. His face was swollen to twice its size, his lips were huge, and his face had turned an ugly purple color. “Dad!” I cried, running forward, both appalled and afraid. “What happened?!” He looked like he wa...

    My dad claims that when I was two, I told everyone I was going to be the next Michael Jordan. I told the clerk at the store, my aunt, I even told a stranger I met on the street. I'd never actually played basketball, but I'd seen Michael Jordan on TV, and that was enough. At first it was cu...

    If there's one thing that bothers me, it's claustrophobic situations. Darkness, enclosed spaces, and lack of fresh oxygen are all factors that make me freak out. I hate being trapped. One Thanksgiving I went to my Aunt's house with my millions of cousins and second cousins. My aunt...

    Nothing can keep me away from real books. I love the feel of a book in my hands, and the ability to flip to any part of a book I want. If books were replaced by digital devices reading would no longer be the same and would become just another thing we do using electronics and staring at screens. No ...

    School’s not easy for a girl who is always being out-shown by her perfect twin sister. I was ordinary, semi-smart, and not particularly good looking. My sister was vibrant, intelligent, and cocky. By the time I reached high school I was used to having teachers look right over my head to hear what...

    The two sickly, pale figures stood in front of me in line at the checkout counter, looking like a pair of vampires emerging into the sun for the first time. The taller of the couple was the palest human being I had ever seen, with skin whiter than chalk, and his frame was thinner than a skeleton. He...

The inside was the picture of elegance; men strode stiffly around in dark tuxedos, and women flaunted draping gowns while clinking delicate champagne glasses. The orchestra played at one side, the melody of the strings floating in and out betw...

    I sat nervously on the padded bench in the doctor's office. My eyes darting back and forth at the sterile walls and white apparalled nurses. I hated going to the doctor, but my symptoms had gone unacknowledged for too long. My face was pale, my fingernails slightly blue and ice cold, my ribs sh...
