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!

These are 3 short pieces written by Justine. In the first piece, she wrote metaphors about members of her family. In the second, she tried using unusual action verbs in sentences and in the third she wrote metaphors and similes about happiness.
