Excerpt from The Antidote
by C. S. Dorsey, a teen and young adult free ebook: 'Blah blah blah, that's all I was hearing in U.S. Government class with Mrs. Martinez. I did not want to sit there and listen to how the government works. It's screwed up anyway. There's the end of that subject, everyone gets an A. I was so tired from the day before - Coach had us working double time at football practice yesterday. The loss on Tuesday hit us hard, especially Coach. The other team's coach was his arch enemy when they were in high school, so he took the loss personally, and made us pay…big time. My muscles were so sore, I almost didn't come to school. Man … Mrs. Martinez was still talking. I wished she would shut up. I looked out the window and found that it was still raining.'
