A Pretty Girl with Cancer by Dave Chapman: Popular student Vicki has been away from her high school for several months while receiving treatments for cervical cancer. Now, a new school year is beginning and Vicki tries to reintegrate into school, recover friendships, and ignore the judgment of those who don’t understand what she has gone through.
This is Temporary by Debbie Lamedman: Is Jennifer a kleptomaniac, a squatter, or simply a confused woman running away from a life of mediocrity? Along with her newly acquired bohemian roommates, Maggie and Kat, the three women are living on the fringe and preparing for a birthday party in a large, empty house using items retrieved from their daily dumpster diving. Without warning, Jennifer’s past catches up with her in the form of Daniel who suddenly arrives to confront her. Torn between the life she knows and the adventure she longs for, Jennifer must decide on what side of the fence she truly belongs.
Scrooge and Marley Have Dinner in Hell by Dave Chapman: We find that after delivering his warning to Ebenezer Scrooge on that fateful Christmas Eve, Jacob Marley has spent the better part of a century tormented in the underworld. But on this Christmas, his old friend Scrooge pays a visit and brings along a surprising gift.
