    A cold, spindly finger jabbed me in the shoulder. I ignored it. I was watching Batman and Robin, sitting on the nubby brown carpet in my grandmother’s apartment. Robin had just bounded onto screen and, being my four-year-old crush, deserved my undivided attention. The finger stabbed at me again, t...

    Certainly, they were wrong, There are too monsters, They knew this, No monsters under the bed, They told me, Only because they are up here, Rattling around in my head. No need to be consumed by fear, But it is too late, Past my bedtime, I will say I feel great, I will say I feel fine, ...

    Little Sister arrived late last night, they tell me this. As if she came in a taxi, and the hospital was just a convenient place to meet up with my parents. I think maybe they bought her from Babies R Us, and even though Big Brother says you can't buy a baby I think you can. They probably just ...

    Tape over my mouth and wrists behind my back, No more speaking, No more scribing. They tell me, This is what you get, For saying what you thought. Jaw clamped shut and fingers locked together, No more shouting, No more writing - not now, not ever. They tell me, This is what we want, We d...

    1. Forgive your parents. 2. Give your mother a dozen roses and tell her you love her without getting sappy. 3. Tell your father he's cooler than Chuck Norris. 4. Tell someone that all you need is their smile. 5. Accept yourself and everybody else as they are. 6. Have a sit-down m...

    I've wanted to travel for as long as I can remember. I was the three year old who ran out the front door at 6 am, before my parents could catch me,in bare feet, looking for adventure on the suburban streets of our neighborhood. I was the seven year old with a backpack slung over my shoulder, an...

    She threw her E-Z Bake Oven in the trash And bought boxing gloves from the pawn shop; paid cash. He purposely melted his GI Joes in the microwave And picked flowers from the neighbor's garden to keep and to save. She donated her doll to the local Goodwill store And traded her brother'...

    The film opens with Bert (John Krasinski from The Office) and Verona (Maya Rudolph of Saturday Night Live) Farlander doing some subtle but decidedly adult things (the film is rated R for language and some sexual content). A curious dilemma presents itself, Bert offers a theory, and in turn gets slap...

    Nostalgic times of hope and pain, I loved you in the most innocent way, Sitting high in the trees, Watching the world below, We never chased anything, Just went with the flow, If only we had known, There was no truth to our impossible dreams, This is no world for kings and queens, My father...

    To start, I don't subscribe to a specific religion. I was raised by a lazy Christian and an active skeptic. I attended church only once in my lifetime, and was slightly disappointed when 3 hours of sitting and listening to a sermon didn't bring me any closer to their so-called God. So I ga...

    "Don't get separated from the group, don't show your face, don't attack any innocents, and do not be intimidated." Spike's voice cracked in my ear, the hot air making me flinch almost as much as the words did. I tried to contain my limbs; they were rattling with too man...

    How I Live Now is an impressive craft, not only by society's standards (as the three awards it has won; The Michael L. Printz Award, The Guardian Award for Children's Fiction, and The Branford Boase Award for a First Novel, will prove) but also by my standards. The protagonist of the st...

    Lying here, Full of fear, They tell us nothing, Yet expect everything, A generation without heroes, Are we a generation of zeroes? Desperate for a place in time, Desperate for a meaningful life, What do we do? Where do we go? Who feeds us lies; And who holds the truth? I am not paranoid,...

    Wake up at 6 am, putter around my room until 7 am. Sit at my desk with a faded notebook in front of me, a chewed up pen in my left hand, and a dribbling toddler sitting on my right knee - until 8 o' clock of course. 8 o' clock is when chaos is most likely here. This is when we have got ...
