Chapter 1

"Helen was gay,"  Julia Taylor said.

"And you're not"  Ann Grove asked.

"Well, Im not so much anything right now."

"Sexual experimentation is not obligatory at fifteen, you know.  Infact, it's not obligatory at any age.
"No, its not that; it's just ... I think Helen likes one of my teachers."

"That's different:  You can't act on that attraction until you've graduated and turned eighteen.  If, of course, Julia is also attracted to her."

"But Edward wasnt Jan's teacher, ever.  And he certainly had boy fri9ends before".

"That was politics."

"It's wrong to win a Nobel?"

"No."  There was a brief pause:  "Jan's mother is also a high-profile celebratory, at least in the Netherlands."

"She just writes poetry"

"She's the Court Poet at the Hague.  That's the equivalent of Poet Laureate in Britain and in the States.  Last year, during the fuss about public funding of the arts,  the First Lady announced she had invited a number of poets to dinner at the White House.  The Poets responded that they would come, and recite some  of the political poems they had written about the President, which was an abuse of hospitality.  The First Lady responded by trying to limit the topics the poets could  write about.  In my opinion, that was a really stupid  move.  Nothing sets a poet's back up like telling her what to write.  Jan's mother wrote two limericks One about the First Lady cancelling the dinner and the other about the poets.  Neither limerick translates into English. 

"However, there was a fuss,"  Ann continued.  The State Department got involved, the royal family got involved, Jan's mother offered to write another limerick, the ambassador from the Hague got involved. 

"In any case, Jan and Edward decided to be law abiding until Jan's eighteenth birthday."

"I didn't know that, about the poets."

Ro-Ange Olson: Loved it and couldn't put it down. I really hope there is a sequel. Well written and the plot really moves forward.

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

Jade Jez: What a wonderful, immersive book from Eliott McKay. It starts with an air of mystery, introducing main character Michaela, the clumsy teenager.

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end.

Nate_L: This story is amazing. The style, the description, it all drags you in. The characters are mostly the well known characters from King Arthur. There's Merlin, the sword: Excalibur. I recommend reading this through, at least a little, as it's a very satisfying read. I added it to my reading list af...

Steve Lang: I thought this story was imaginative, and well thought out. I also think it was an original piece, and not a rehash of previous scifi stories I've read in the past.Thank you for the effort put into this tale, and I look forward to reading more of your work!

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...
