Kyrstyn Hartman I read it grade 8 and absolutely adored it, I couldn't put it down, we could finish the last few pages as the bell rang but I couldn't wait for the next day to finish it.
Heather I cannot say for sure except it was one of many when I was in High School that was included in our textbook as short stories. Also had excerpt of Anne Frank's diary. I guess meant to make you think.
Karl Read the short story "Killing Time" by Jon Land. It's in the book "Thriller 2," By Clive Cussler. You'll get your answer there;)
