Most teens would agree that their own parents can be so embarrassing; and so not cool. During a car ride to school one morning, two unsuspecting and stubborn siblings discover exactly how the people they trust and respect the most view their mom. And it’s not exactly what this brother and sister would expect to hear. 

By Izzy Glauser,  age 13

Catherine, a witness to the Kent State shooting, comes to term with her past and current life through examining letters she wrote to herself as a child. 

By Maddie Ferguson, age 14

Damien Shay fights all the crime in town and doesn’t receive any credit because Silversaige claims to be the best hero in town. When Damien meets an unusual group of villains who all have personal vendettas with the alleged hero, will Damien join them in their quest for revenge? Or will Silversaige remain in power? 

by Eden Wheeler,  age14
