The Art of Drowning
by Abigail Wild
Larkin and Reagan have always been at odds, competing for everything.
Larkin lost two years to post-concussion syndrome. She wonders if she’s even the same person she once was. Abandoned by friends, she takes her first step toward her future: alone. Was it a mistake for her to go back for her senior year? Will they laugh at her panic attacks? Will they notice she isn’t eating? Will she make it through the first day?
Beautiful, tough, popular . . . cunning, Reagan puts on a good show. No one notices her pain and she prefers it that way. Her life is nothing, just like her mother says, but it looks perfect. When Larkin went down, Reagan stepped into her shoes. Now Reagan has her senior year all planned out. One perfect year before she can finally escape her mother’s grasp Her nightmare over. Or is it?
Face to face on the first day of their senior year . . . lightning strikes.

Words: An Anthology by and for Teens
Sponsored by CC Teen
2020 was a difficult year for all. When foodbanks started asking for more help, a group of teens came together with an idea for a fundraiser. They knew they didn’t have money to give, but they did have the talent of the written word. They decided to pull their creative writing together in an anthology of poems, personal essays, and short stories, with all revenue going to the Pennsylvania Food Banks. They worked tirelessly on their writing while workshopping and editing as a group. The burning question in their minds was always, “What more can we do?”
Support these teen writers by purchasing and enjoying the musing of their hearts. Know that this project comes from the spirit of the giving of their time and talents to aid those who are worried about tomorrow.
