“I would walk slowly in the sand and nasrrate a catchy, juicy line in my head: ‘I walked slowly in the hot sand, which was now beginning to cool down because of the gentle breeze that also blew on my long, cruly brown hair. Against the golden sunshine it looked like shiny copper chains.’ This is the story of how my mind flew across the mirrors of my heart.”

— Nicole Flores, age 12, pg. 99
