A Still Life
A Short, Young Adult story that was originally part of of Enchanted Publications' "WHAT THE HEART WANTS" anthology
SUMMARY: Charlotte Sweets has it all. Parents that are still married, great SAT scores, friends, sports, and highly sought after A.P. grades.
Heath Gooding is just a kid from the wrong side of the river, satisfied that he makes it through each day without getting killed. His goals include living until he’s twenty, and saving up enough money to get out of the Rapids alive.
When Charlotte’s school visits Heath’s side of town for a volunteer project, the two of them cross paths and find that maybe they aren’t as happy with the status quo as they once thought.
