''A New Experience''

By: Candace M.
North Carolina, Age 11

I experienced for the very first time a new life in a new town. I listened for the blaring horns and car doors slamming, but I heard nothing but the chirping songs from the Blue jays outside my window. I could feel my eyes start to burn and drops of tears rolled down my cheeks like an endless summer rain. Would I like my new home in North Carolina as much as my 2-story townhouse in the beloved New York?
