    Lets Get Lost – Adi Alsaid

He stepped outside the garage and closed his eyes, listening, picking apart the sounds so that he would know exactly what he’s have to fix before he even popped the hood. Standing there against the garage, listening to the still-far-off car, Hudson could forget about everything else.

    The Ice Age – Kirsten Reed

    “There were those teeth. Those little vampire teeth, glinting sharply as he stared at the road in front of us in a vacant daze. We drove past all the gaudy painted signs telling us where the next doughnut shop was, the nearest hamburger joint; pizza, now doughnuts again.” She’s strong, young and carefree. He’s old enough to be her father. They are traveling together after he picks her up from the side of the road. As the two of them make their way across the country they form a friendship that could be construed as wrong from outside eyes. Going from place to place they both appear to me learning…
