Overview

Maggie: A Girl of the Streets and Other Stories by Stephen Crane

First published in 1893, Maggie: A Girl of the Streets is the first published fiction work of American author Stephen Crane. A harrowing depiction of a pretty young girl's life in the slums of turn-of-the-century New York City and her eventual decline into prostitution, Crane's novel is a starkly realistic examination of poverty and the challenges brought about by the rapid industrialization the United States underwent in the late 1800s. An enduring classic, Maggie is often regarded as the first example of naturalism in American fiction, a literary movement that included such authors as Theodore Dreiser and Upton Sinclair. This edition also includes three of Crane's short stories: "The Monster," "The Blue Hotel," and "His New Mittens."

So. At the beginning of the year, I developed a huge crush on someone. He was my best frnds friends last year, but I had never talked to him until this year. He's in orchestra, and I'm in band, so we often see eachother at concerts(school). And we've grown to be really good friends. But ya see, when I learn that someone likes me, I just fade away from them. And that's exactly what happened. In February, my best friend told me that he liked me. She DID NOT know that I had a crush on him. She said, "Don't tell anyone. I wasn't even supposed to tell YOU!" Then shortly after that, I've caught him looking at me a lot, becoz idk...I look at my crushes a lot especially when they're not looking(not a stalker xD). I know that sounds creepy, but who doesn't do that? Eh. Well, it's the end of the school year, and I want that friendship to come back. NATURALLY. I don't want to look desparate. I don't know if he still feels for me, coz he's literally all that's on my mind...So I just want to get the friendship back to it's normal place and see if he still likes me. How do I approach him? I haven't talked to him in a while...
