Editorial Reviews

Cemetery Dance - Garrett Peck
"...he creates a bittersweet portrait of the skating culture that arose in Southern California in the 70's while exploring the themes of friendship, loyalty, revenge, and abuse of powerIt has been said that all evil needs to flourish is for good men to remain silent. Gonzalez shows us that silence may be a survival instinct, and how horrible secrets inevitably beget more horrors...and more secrets."

    Bullyhatergirl

    I don't actually hate bullies but I don't like them either. I can't say I have never really bullied anyone but I have. A kid who is now a really good friend of mine was bullied and one day I realized "Wow when did everyone in our society turn corrupted on us I can't believe how blind I have been" When I stood up for him they made fun of me and out of all things I could have done I laughed. I knew that they knew they were talking about themselves and they all just turned around and left me and my friend alone. He still gets bullied but I still help him out. Bulling is a horruble thing among the human race I would rather live with wolves than with humans. All we ever care about is money I hate it so much I either purposly lose my money or I give it away. My best treasure is my ability to see past bulling and stand up for people. I never truly understood bullying but I never cared all I know is that its hurtful and rude and really cruel. To bullies try acting kind and ignore the thoughts that say hey this kids different lets pick on them. Look past your conceded thoughts and help someone for a change give homeless food give money to organizations just help someone and you will feel better please try. Sorry if I am being rude or self conceded but please try.~Haley B. or Lief

    A bit unusual for JFG but still awesome!

    There are no supernatual elements to this story, but plenty of horrific thoughts and actions. A slow burn with well developed characters and a ending that leaves you gasping. Highly recommended,!

    I know. I am surpised. Even grown people base people on their looks and beliefs(Hitler has an ecuese. He was pshyo). I think that also people only think about money because it is so hard to get. We are being replaced with Robots! -Coklat(not a typo. It's Malay for choclate. Google translate.)
