“Just Don’t Never Give Up On Love” by Sonia Sanchez 

  • I had to read this story for my American Lit. II class and found it to be so … magical, surreal, and abstract. A little post-modernist piece that makes you think. It’ll rack your brain with the weirdness of it, but leave you with a message that will resonate in the heart.

“Lamb to the Slaughter” by Ronald Dahl

  • This is such a great short story. It’s deceiving and well written, and well worth the 10 minutes you will spend reading it! Also, it definitely supports that idea that one must be careful of the quiet ones.
