Middle School Memories

"The thing adults forget about middle school is that it can kill you."
A few weeks ago I got an email from an editor at the website Weird Girls ("Goonies meets Poltergeist...with girls") asking if I had a story about middle school for their Weird Tales series. I was inspired to sift through my old spiral-ringed diaries from my middle school days--an activity that was part fun, part painful. The resulting story was "Confession," appearing this week on Weird Girls. Be sure to check out the story and also the wonderful illustrations. I hope there's a middle school girl (current or former) out there who finds some comfort in my story.
