Chapter 1

Ever since I was small

You told me to stand tall

You told me not to sweat the petty

And everything is petty

You told me that you'd always care

And that you would always be there

You told me you'd never lie

Now I don't see why

Maybe you think I'm still a little kid

And can't understand all the things you did

You treat me like I'm only two

Then again you treat me like I'm ninety-two

What you think you know,

But you really don't know

Is that my life surely blows

All I have is God

And some days it's all I can do to nod

You have me so tightly wrapped

I'm suffocating in your trap

What you don't realize is how bad you've hurt me

And you may need new glasses'Cause you're to blind to see

You have me under your spell

And you must do magic'Cause you knew how to do it well

You have always been the one wearing the crown

I don't even know which way is down

I can't think

Every thing just sinks

You tell me not to worry

But dad, all good things in life leave in a hurry

The end of summer

Will be a bummer

For the choice will be made

The law will be laid

Will I stay in foster care?

Or will I be left in your care?

What do I want?

I'll just be blunt

I HAVE NO F-ING CLUE!

vane 3071: This book taught me so much and I even began to think, no wait know, it's important that people of all ages learn more about it. I may only be 14 but all we've always been told is that there the "special kids" that they have "issues", basically that they weren't normal. If we were to associate wi...

fellipxx: I loved this novel, it was very sweet and big on the emotions I really enjoyed it and could not stop reading not even for a second, I even cried a little bit at a few touching moments too. And overall I found this book sweet, realistic and cheesy (I like the cheesy stuff).

Christopher Calvo: Truly a wonderful read and very well written! Love the characters and character development, and can smell the frybread as I read it! Can't wait for more as we delve into the Buffalo Summer.

WildFlower Fire: I have only read the first chapter and I LOVE the writing style. I am excited to meet the characters and want to find out more. Looking forward to the rest.

Deleted User: I can easily identify with the characters as having gone through those terrible times myself. The writer has skillfully brought yet another side of those days to life. A good read which I recommend to everyone.

Ariel: First book from the Author I've read, and am extremely impressed and very much satisfied that this story was a short-story, yet, filled with great writing, fantastic characters, and all I'd like is more, please. Malice, she is my favorite!!

Jessica McAlpine: I fell in love easily with this story. In the beginning it reminded me of Studio Ghibli films where fantasy is mixed with some science, almost like steampunk but not.I continued to enjoy the world culture of The Shattered Girl. I especially love the idea of dwarves being seafaring folk instead of...

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel.
