Every week, in "You Read it Here First!" we feature writing from students in "Take My Word For It's!" creative writing classes.

When these young authors become well known writers, you can say you read them here first!

Frances' piece, "Cliffs By The Sea", was written as part of a "Take My Word For It!" writing workshop entitled, Secrets and Lies on the Line. Students randomly chose a piece of paper with either a secret or a lie written on it. Then their task was to build a story around it. "Cliffs By the Sea" appears in two parts, below.
