Dark Circles by Annie Abbondante

All I ever really wanted were dark circles under my eyes.

All I ever really wanted were dark circles under my eyes. The thin, navy half-moons seemed so elusive and beautiful. I wanted the kind you get from being malnourished or not getting enough sleep. Models who spent nights with rock stars had them. Dancers who devoted themselves too much to their art had them. Pale girls with black hair and . . .

OYSTERS, PEARLS AND MAGIC

an original premise

This encourages me, because I think the Internet is reminding us that a story is a living, growing thing. Paper books don’t change, and I love them for that; they will always hold [more . . .]
