Short stories

Trapped! Cages of the Mind and Body is a collection of short stories by authors such as Rob Thomas, Marc Talbert, and Lois Duncan. Pancakes, by Joan Bauer, was a great story about a young, perfect girl that is flabbergasted by an experience she has as a waitress. She realizes how not-to-be-trapped by her own perfectionism. In Lois Lowery’s story, A Matter of Getting Out, two teen boys learn that they can’t outrun a mistake and have to pay the consequences of their acti

This book is one of the BEST BOOKS THAT I HAVE EVER READ!!!! I absolutely love this book because this book is about feeling trapped, whatever and wherever it may be. This book can help people do things to change their lives and their lifestyles. But, I wouldn't really go past that. This book will be one of the best book a person will ever read, if they are ten or eighty. ...more
The short storys in this book were orignal some written very unique, I recieved this book for a christmas gift a very long time ago and its still a part of my collection, Some of the short storys are better then others some just plain strange but it was ok
I like Lois' especially. This book is enlightening for someone who might not remember very well what it is like to be at the break just past innocence but before enough experience to know 'this too shall pass'
Out of all the short stories in the book, the only one that I liked was Pancakes. All the others are a hit-over-the-head and are on topics that have been discussed many, many, many, many, many times.
It was an ok book.

“We are the wise.
Do not envy us—
We who are too wise to draw near
the fire
Lest we get burned;
We who are too wise to love
Lest love should vanish and we be
We are the wise.
Do not envy us our wisdom—
We who are too wise to live
Lest we should die.”
