The List
By: Siobahn Vivian

Summary:
It happens every year. A list is posted, and one girl from each grade is chosen as the prettiest, and another is chosen as the ugliest. Nobody knows who makes the list. It almost doesn’t matter. The damage is done the minute it goes up.

Haiku Review:

Could’ve been a series,
Instead squished eight tales in one.
Outline with no depth.

    I am crushed! I read On the Beach when I was in the eighth grade (1965?) and I enjoyed it very much, but then no one had even heard of kinky sex.

      I probably would have enjoyed it far more if I’d read it in the eighth grade!

    Fantastic review format! I loved these as much as the first post 🙂

      Aw, thank you! I really enjoy writing them, and they’re getting a good response, so I figured why not keep it going. It’s my reward for making it through disappointing reads. 😉
