    Don’t Even Think About It – Sarah Mlynowski

    “”We were not always freaks.  Sure, most of us occasionally exhibited freakish behaviour. But that’s not the same thing.  Olivia Byrne, when she worried about something, picked the skin around her thumbnails until her fingers bled.  Cooper Miller sang badly. When he walked down the hall, when he studied, when he ate. He wasn’t singing the Top 40 either – he made up the tunes and lyrics about his everyday like. Walking to school. Being late to math.” Something isn’t right with homeroom 10B. They can hear everyones thoughts; their best friends’, their parents’, their boyfriends’ and girlfriends’ – no one’s thoughts are off limits. Worst of all, they each…

    “I pick up a baseball bat. It’s a thirty-two-ounce Rawlings composite. I feel the weight in my hands. The balance is slightly off from a dent on the tip.  I grasp the bat on either end and stretch out in the parking lot after the game. Natick vs. Wellesley. My Natick teammates are all around me, high school jocks doing what they do after a win. Celebrating. Big-time.” Boy Nobody is exactly that: nobody. He is an assassin and he is there to do a job. But when he is assigned to kill the mayor of New York by way of the Mayor’s Daughter, things change. He becomes somebody, he…

    Slated – Teri Terry

    “I run. Fists of waves claw the sand as I force one foot to pound after the other. Scramble up, slip down, repeat. Fast. Eyes fixed on dunes ahead. Don’t look back.Mustn’t look. Ragged breath; in, out; in, out. Still I run.” Kyla has been slated. She knows nothing prior to the nine months she has been in hospital, being prepared for the outside world. The memory of whatever happened before is gone, she is 16 and her new parents are picking her up from the hospital. The Government claim she was a terrorist, or a criminal and she is getting a second chance, but Kyla knows nothing of that…
