Short Stories!!!

 

Have you ever tried reading a short story?  There are books published with a theme and different authors write a short story within that theme.  Each story is different since each author has a different view point.  Short stories are great when you don't want to get involved with a longer title.  Teenspace compiled a list of short stories awhile ago, but more have been published.  Check out these short stories for some great tales.
