"Mina Cortez: From Bouquets to Bullets" by Jeffrey CookMina Cortez: From Bouquets to Bullets

by Jeffrey Cook

She’d never said, “I want to join the Secret Police when I grow up.”

Of course, Mina Cortez hadn’t known there were secret police. She just knew she’d rather be a ballerina than a florist. But in 2154, though the world has mostly recovered from the supervolcano, vocational education is still programmed based on aptitude testing. An implanted skill chip can give the recipient many things, but not longer legs. So Mina fully expected to end up inheriting her family’s flower shop and landscaping business someday.

Like three generations before her, she had the nose for it.

She didn’t expect one of her best friends to be kidnapped. She didn’t expect to be inducted into a covert organization by desperate authorities. She didn’t expect to have to be grateful for her other best friend’s ‘undead’ Chevy. She didn’t expect programmed spy information to come with the taste of aluminum on her tongue — or a burning sensation when she fought its impulses. She didn’t expect fights, car chases, family secrets, bureaucrats acting as espionage cheerleaders, electro-magnetic pulses, or the frequent scent of gun oil.

She definitely didn’t expect to still have to deliver flowers while figuring it all out.

"Passing Notes" by D. G. DriverPassing Notes

by D. G. Driver

 Mark has finally gotten the attention of the girl of his dreams. Only, his lame attempts at romance through texts and emails seem to be turning her off. When he gets put in the back of the room in an over-full class at school, he begins to discover old notes giving advice about how to write a great love letter. At first he thinks he’s stumbled on some long-forgotten notes passed in class ages ago, but every time he reads them they seem directed specifically to him. They also appear at the perfect moment each time he needs more advice. It’s like someone is haunting him.

How do the notes keep appearing? Who’s writing them? Why?

And if Mark follows the ghostly writer’s advice, will he win Bethany’s love?

A Door Just Opened

by Dorothy Stephens

Thirteen-year-old Anna’s passionate dream is to go to high school, the first girl from her tiny farm community back in 1910 to do so. She is determined not to stay at home like her older sister, Mary Ellen, helping their mother and waiting to marry a local farmer. But there is no money to send her to River Heights, seven miles away, and anyway, her mother needs her.

When sixteen-year-old Mary Ellen is sexually assaulted by a local boy, the situation gets worse. No one suspects Mary Ellen is pregnant until she gives birth to the illegitimate baby. The surprise birth threatens to ruin the family’s standing in the community and Mary Ellen’s reputation.

Anna wrestles with helping her parents and sister while still striving to make her burning desire to go to high school a reality. Meanwhile she becomes involved in solving the mystery of a missing ring, and in stopping another attack by the boy who assaulted her sister. But how will that help her realize her dream?
