Congratulations to Coralie for getting first place in my All Survivors Contest.
Check out her story "Airborne". It's great and worth the read!
I am a 13-year-old writer in the 8th grade and I hope you all like my writing. I write mystery, action, and adventure novels. Those are also my favorite types of novels. My main works are my mystery novel "The Island's Legacy" and my action novel "The Aftermath". I have a variety of short stories on my page and feel free to check any of them out. Some are short, some are long, so its your choice. Well, you don't have to read anything at all if you don't want.
I am not a big romance fan at all unless it is mixed with another genre, like "The Arid Land Series" by Arid Land Kate. Actually, that is one of the best things on Booksie.
STUFF ABOUT ME!
I'm kind of an energetic person. I love the New York Yankees. They have two of my favorite players: Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano. I also like Josh Hamilton but he doesn't play for the Yankees. He plays for the Angels. I love to read and I read at a twelfth grade level. So I can read some more mature content, not X-rated mature, but I can handle a few curse words, as long as its not overboard sailor language.
My favorite color is blue, although I am color blind and mistake certain shades for purple. So I guess I only like certain shades of blue because I hate purple (< that is purple, right? Just kidding, Booksie has labels on the colors, lol.)
READING REQUEST POLICIES
Anyway, my reading request policies are pretty simple. Just let me know on my page and I'll check it out when I find the time or when I feel like it. If you ask me to read something romance-based, don't be offended if I don't read it. I just don't like romance. But I just might read your stuff, so you never know.
Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention: Abosolutely NO erotica!!!! I may be a mature 13-year-old, but I'm still only 13. And to be honest, that my least favorite out of all genres. So don't even ask me to read anything of the kind.
Here are all of my novels. Click on the picture beneath the title of each novel to go straight to it.
~THE ISLAND'S LEGACY ~
When Adam Burns and his family are invited to spend their summer in a private manor on a private island, his parents pack their bags immediately. Adam questions the sudden arrival of the invitation, but his parents have no suspicions. After he arrives on the island, he is told to avoid the fourth floor of the east wing. And why does a strange fog hang over the forest? To complicate things, weird events begin to take place. After an unexpected discovery, Adam and his younger brother, Phil, realize that their family history is tied to the island. It's up to them to set out on a journey through the island's vast forest and attempt to prevent a horrible fate from befalling their family and the island. Will they break the curse? Or will curse break them?
In the year 2030, an event happened in the United States. An explosion, to be exact. An explosion that wiped Oregon off the map. This explosion radiated chemicals that gave people special abilities. These people were called the Affected. But not all Affected people used their abilities for good. As a solution, the government formed the Special Abilities Law Enforcement Unit, or S.A.L.E. In the year 2042, the S.AL.E. grew corrupt. They began arresting anyone who had abilities, not just those who broke the law. Now, in the year 2045, a sixteen-year-old named Greg has accidentally revealed his abilities. His is forced on the run and betrayed by those he loves. With the S.A.L.E. close on his heels, Greg is forced to think on his own and make difficult decisions. He knows being caught is inevitable. Until he meets a mysterious Affected man who knows some of the S.A.L.E.'s darkest secrets. But does this man have some secrets of his own?
Before he knows it, Greg is swamped with choices and decisions. But will he able to make the right ones? Will he be able to keep himself alive in the middle of a country suffering through the Aftermath of a disaster?

Dear Bullies, That boy you punched in the hall today; committed suicide a few minutes ago. That girl you called a slut in class today; she's a virgin. That boy you called lame; has to work every night to support his family. That girl you pushed down the other day; is already being abused at home. The girl you just called ugly? She spends hours putting makeup on hoping people will like her. The boy you just tripped? He is abused enough at home. See that man with the ugly scars? He fought for his country. That guy you just made fun of for crying? His mother is dying. You think you know them? Guess what, you don't. Copy and Paste this to your profile. Show that you care.
