BREAKOUT, by Kevin Emerson


The story: Life would stink a lot less if Anthony could spend all his time playing with his band, the Rusty Soles, or moving up to the next level of Liberation Force, his favorite game. Mostly, though, he’s stuck at school, doing (or not doing) stuff he doesn’t care about, and getting in trouble more than he should. One night, grounded unfairly and raging at the system, Anthony writes and records a song, sends it to his bandmate Keenan, and next thing he knows, everyone he knows has heard those three F-bombs at the end. The band is supposed to sing the song at the upcoming Arts Night – will Anthony have the guts to sing it like it really is?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you’ve ever felt like everything at school and in life is against you, and if you’ve ever felt like swearing about it–this story might be for you.
