Find Me

by Romily Bernard

I thought I was just Wick Tate, the computer hacker who looked into people's lives, but a diary showed up  to my house, and it changed everything.  It's a girls' named Tessa Waye, who had just been found dead, and inside her diary I find the words, "Find me."  Why would someone give this to me when all I am is a computer genius?  It turns me into more of a detective than what should be expected.  I begin to realize my whole life is involved until I solve this mystery.  As I get deeper into this, I begin to realize my sister and i are the next targets.  I start to get involved with another hacker, who turns into someone special in my life.  Once things really start to get personal, we become a dream team going against my dead-beat dad, a detective who knows all about my work, and the killer who has my family targeted.  Who or what will stop me?

Life After Juliet

by Shannon Lee Alexander

For me, I have no control over whether it's dark or light.  It's only illuminated in the theater when someone flips the switch.  The people who come in, actors or not, place me where they need me for the scene.  I am the balcony, where Juliet stands.  All year, I've seen these people grow and thrive on the stage.  They've built friendships and love.  They've been through conflicts and wins with each other; it's amazing to see them together.  I wish I could be with them, but I am only a prop.

Love and Other Uknown Variables

By Shannon Lee Alexander

There's this girl.  She's the most perfect and amazing girl I've ever met.  Her smile could light up the world.  Now me, on the other hand, am an awkward, geeky, math guy.  I've always struggled with getting a girl.  (I usually end up with a bloody nose.)  This girl, though, has decided to stay, and I'm not exactly sure why.  She's mysterious and intriguing, but there's something about her, and I'm not sure what it is.  You should meet her too, maybe you can figure her out.

The Two Towers

by J.R.R. Tolkien

They won't succeed.  This "fellowship" is already fractured and broken, as two members lay dead, and the rest are scattered throughout Middle-earth.  My bearer, the hobbit Frodo, already feels my touch, and the greed growing in the heart of the wretch.  Gollum will only speed their doom.  The fools have already carried me into Mordor, now it is only a matter of time before I am reunited with my master Sauran.

I Am the Traitor

By Allan Zadoff
