TITLE: MOONLIT STORM
GENRE: Young Adult
I gave little thought to how my life could drastically change. How quickly death could
come and how, out of nowhere, I could be left all alone. Happiness filled me over the past
seventeen years, until that day—the day my life was spared.
Never in a thousand years did I think I would spend my last year in high school like this.
I mean, how many teens have to deal with being an orphan? And Gio, she will always be part of
me. Twins never leave each other, even if their souls are wandering somewhere else. She may be
in a coma, but she's still my sister.
I'm Ruby Angiolini, class president of Oneida High School. I was stronger than this. I
never let anything get me down—not until the accident. I used to be a normal teen. You know,
the ones who have a family, and like to hang out with their friends on the weekends, gossiping
about who has a crush on who. Instead of fighting with my sister about whose turn it is to wash
dishes, I'm missing her. I miss her fearless personality, how she would approach her current
crush without getting all clammed up. I almost hit the floor when I saw her talking to Logan the
day before the accident. No one had the courage to smile at him, let alone talk to him. Something
about him captivated half the school. Something more than just his good looks and charm.
