The Apple Tart of Hope
Wow, that was something. Short but packed a punch. Alas, too old for my particular school but I will highly recommend.
Oscar and Meg have been neighbors and best friends for a long time. When Meg's parents decide to move to New Zealand for 6 months Meg is not happy. Oscar encourages her to embrace the change and of course keep in touch. Meg finally realizes why she doesn't want to leave and writes Oscar a letter about it. But she never sends it, she puts it under her mattress. Enter Paloma, the perfect girl who moves into Meg's house while they are gone. Oh, a woman scorned. Things go terribly wrong for Meg and Oscar due to a intentional misdirect and meddling by Paloma. Shortly after everyone thinks Oscar has committed suicide. But did he? Is Meg crazy to hope?
Like I said really good!!!
