I should tell you that ASK THE PASSENGERS received its third starred review last week. Here's a quote:
✮ "King continues to expertly plumb the lovely numbness of a young person struck by emotional paralysis. ... Another thoughtful, and often breathtaking achievement."--Booklist
Now...for a contest.
Write me a comment about your ankles. I want to know about them. Ankles are very nice. They are the gateway to the feet, and feet are pretty awesome, too.
If you feel like writing about your imagined ankles, or your ankles from the third person, that's great. If you feel like penning a poem or a limerick, that's great too. So long as it works. If you're new to these writing contests, know that whatever you enter has to work. We're not here to mess around. I like great writing. Avoid cliches. Anyone who uses the term cankles will be disqualified.
