The 826 Quarterly by San Francisco Bay Area Students, Tom Kealey

This volume of The 826 Quarterly showcases the best poetry, short fiction, and nonfiction written by kids in the San Francisco Bay Area. Past issues have covered everything from skort-wearing to mole removal to a math equation involving a chicken and a potato. Topics in this seventh issue include a 30-minute high school love affair, a sewer cleaner who teams up with a rock to save their city, and the world's oldest two-year-old. The pieces were selected by the students and adults at McSweeney's 826 Valencia writing center, who combed through hundreds of submissions to find the stories presented here.
