I Remember... Running Fast, Scared and Shaking
The students of Hirsch Metro High School explore memories that have shaped their lives in this chapbook. From the first time trying pizza, to the best basketball season, positive memories are shaped by personal reflection and gratitude. These writers, however, are not afraid to explore the shadows of their young lives: the death of a grandmother, the sound of gunshots, and parental punishment are all themes explored by this collection. These pieces share with their readers emotional intimacy executed with poise, encouraging a similar introspection on the part of the reader.
