Adding six more sentences of my soon-to-be-pubbed Young Adult (Far from Mercy) from which I pulled my flash fiction short. The short was titled "Mercy," and can be downloaded for free at Smashwords, Kobo, or Barnes and Noble.

But I didn't currently do girly, and I was no longer Charlotte Baker. Here, I was Charlie Little, the boy the community took in, along with a baby sister and a dying mother, only a little over six months ago. If they ever thought differently, I wouldn’t last the night.
