Coming to life as I sleep haha I did think the comb was going to turn out to be evil or alittle monster and terrorise the girl but was surprised by the pleasant twist The story was a eally good ead and left you wanting I did laugh at the my friend and I told our parents we were staying at eachothers houses bit as this is something all teenage girls have done and ended up getting caught out as usualI will admit I did shed a tear when the lady asked did she look beautiful awww and when she came into the classroom in the endNow I go on to Nad ge Richards story soon will write on each author If I Should Die Before I Wake by Jana Boskey All her life Evie s mother made sure that Evie and Callie never went outside after dark Evie didn t believe the fairytale about the dark elf until he showed up for his posession Then Evie had to do anything to protect her little sister Suspenseful story that kept the eader on the seat of their chair and an ending that was unexpected A Brush With Something Otherworldly by Jennivie Wirries Jessie thought the item she took out of the time capsule at school was boring an old Japanese hair comb But when the comb showed magical abilities Jessie ealized she got a one of a object It was alright not my favorite and a little odd Although it was uniue and I ve never ead about The Winter Storms Have Come and Gone by Nad ge Richards Bethany says goodbye to Maxwell Breakups happen all of the time but not too many have a permanent ending like theirs What many ex girlfriends probably want to do even if they never do so Very short but well written and it compels the eader to find out The Little Sister Who Cried Vampire by Brittany Hiester Having to babysit her younger sister on Halloween was not part of Rosa s plans So when Leah kept saying she saw a man in her window Rosa chalked it up to Leah being annoying Too bad she didn t believe Leah ight away Rosa complained too much for my liking but that made her ealistic as she s 14 A lot of punctuation errors but the story was very action based which I liked 300 AM Fun by Ashley O Donnell After leaving her house and small town for 5 years Abigail comes home when her mother passes away The thought of staying for awhile crossed her mind but that was before 300 AM came around Was very shocked to ead that a 16 year old wrote this Very well written and very disturbing It will keep the eader asking uestions after eading this story The Tornadoes are Beautiful by Rhian Parry Natural disasters are happening all over the world destroying any sense of civilization Xavier has been hearing voices all of his life voices that tell him to do things When it says to kill his sister Xavier takes the ultimate isk to save her life This has a mix of Day After Tomorrow but with a depressing atmosphere of no hope There wasn t too much dialogue which made the story slow for me but it was a good story I AM by Cody Jonathan Godown A narrator who eflects on the past looks at the future and wishes for changes during the present About a narrator who states I am cautious and curious This is a one page verse story written in the format of a poem I m horrible at eading poems and can t understand them so I didn t enjoy this story as much as I should have For eaders who like verse they might like it better than I did They Speak To Me by Melissa Somoza When she was nine Rose was like it better than I did They Speak To Me by Melissa Somoza When she was nine Rose was to leave her parents because The Society was trying to kill Rose She s half clairvoyance and half necromancer one of the darkest supernatural being in the world At the age of 18 she s now on a mission to kill the members of The Society for evenge of her parents death She is the ultimate assassin The ultimate weapon My second favorite story in this anthology It eminded me of Kelley Armstrong s series The Darkest Power and I found myself loving
