    I got a thirty-six on my ACT. I also scored 2210 on my SAT, including a perfect 800 on the critical reading section. My GPA is 4.0, despite the fact that I’m taking four AP classes at a time, in addition to numerous honors courses. I’m enrolled in the concurrent enrollment program with my ...

    The beasts wait Behind the school Rumbling Blinking sideways in the sun Doors fanning, flapping To keep themselves cool. Their breath is hot in the warm air. Waiting to be loaded, Kneeling sometimes at the curb, They shift and stamp impatiently Brakes squeaking Because the beasts and thei...

    t is at that point when legions of goose bumps roar out along my arms At that point when I feel my lungs inflate In a gasp of wonder At that point when my thoughts bend in ways I’ve never imagined At that point of sudden And blazing light That I know I’ve known a Poet....

    I slammed him against the lockers and the bang echoed. He grunted but didn’t fight back- I didn’t think he would. Coward. I put my hands on his shoulders and pushed, pinning him. Gage glanced around desperately, like he was hoping someone would help him. It was forty minutes after school got ...

    I threw open the window and clambered out into the cold night air. It was starting to snow again. My heart was thudding- I heard running feet, a barking dog somewhere. It sounded like the whole compound was on alert. I balanced on the second story windowsill, frantically trying to figure out what I...

    There's five of us. I've had to learn four names in the past two minutes. Already, I've lost three of them, and the last one is just floating around – I'm unsure who to attach it to. I never have been good with names. It's a Honda, gray interior, an Accord, I think. I didn't s...

    “Did you hear? Jesse Greene committed suicide.” A statement like that before class is enough to make anyone pause. I stop in the middle of my precalc problem and listen, staring at my paper. “What? Really?” It’s two voices, and I recognize them both without looking- Jordan and Brody....

    Tricia burst through the door, strode across the room, and slammed her fist into my jaw before I could even turn around to see what she wanted. I fell out of my chair onto the floor, but as I popped back up I discovered that she had her gun drawn and aimed at me. For a second I just stood ther...

    A sampling of a few college courses in the Loony Tunes universe: Economics: 1. Acme is the only manufacturing company in the world. 2. The law of supply and demand: if someone demands an Acme product, it will be instantaneously supplied. 3. And… that’s pretty much it. Psychology: 1....

    Here’s some advice for the next time you attempt something very risky and/or dangerous: don’t wait in a an underground parking garage beforehand if you can help it. Cheap orange lighting highlights the pipes running along the ceiling, but creates deep black shadows in odd places for no apparent...

    Another day, another field, another bunch of angry people trying to kill me. I pound along the path, trying to get my breath back. There’s a split- left or right? A guy holding a machete tears up the left fork, and I pick right. This is becoming annoyingly common. The field part, at least- p...

    This is the third part of a trilogy of short stories. Make sure you've read 'The Morning and a Fugitive' and 'The Morning and a Victim' first. April 29, 2110 I was almost surprised when I woke up- I was actually alone. Nobody was trying to kill me, nobody standing on...

    The bench was hard and the breeze was cold. Everything looked gray- the clouded sky, the bus, and the concrete everywhere. Of course the concrete- middle of the city. I actually happen to like a gray and cloudy sky. Usually. Not today, because it masked my view. I heard a cross between a whistle ...

    “Part two?!” exclaimed Trent. “What happened to part one?” Martin shrugged. “I don’t know. I wasn’t asked.” Trent was less than happy. “Everyone knows you can’t start with part two. It makes no sense! So now, when I tell you who’s really behind all of it, it’s not a gre...

    I may not be an athlete But that won't stop me from playing Even if I can't score the winning goal I refuse to sit on the sidelines. I love the thrill of the chase. I may not be a chef But that won't stop me from cooking Even if it burns and curdles I refuse to live off a microwave. I lov...

    April 27, 2110 It’s always hard to wake up when you’re cold, still tired, and anticipating a long and tough day. It gets even worse when you realize there’s a boot on your chest and a gun pointed in your face. I blinked, trying to bring my world back together. I’d fallen asleep last ni...

    No, you may not read this story. I really am proud of it, yes. It's not embarrassing. I'm not hiding anything. And I have indeed posted it on the Internet for hundreds to see. People say it's good. You still may not read it. Why? Because you're my dad. It has everything to do with it, okay...

    I’m sitting in an Italian restaurant in Santiago, eating pizza. It doesn’t taste any more Italian than pizza in the US or Sweden or Tonga- or, for that matter, anywhere that’s not actually Italy. The dining area is oldish but clean. Nobody else is in here, and the single waiter is somewhere...
