The short story ideas for tweens and teens keep popping into my head. I don’t really know where the ideas are coming from, I only hope they keep coming.
Here’s a synopsis of my latest:
Wish Upon A Star
Be Careful What You Wish For
Frank lived with his grandmother in a beach house on an island. One year ago, his parents had gone out on a boat with some friends. A storm, that seemed to come out of nowhere, caused the boat to capsize. They all died at sea.
The boy’s Grandmother told him that if he makes a wish on a certain star on Halloween, it will come true.
Unable to sleep the night before Halloween, he decides to take a late night walk on the beach. One minute after midnight, he looks upon the star, and wishes that his parents were back.
Exhausted from a late night, he sleeps in then next morning, then gets up to make preparations for his Halloween party.
That night, during the party at the beach house, a bunch of evil zombie-like people crash his party and start attacking. It is his parents and the other people who died on the boat. When he wished for them to come back he wasn’t specific enough. They came back as they were.
