Everything That Came Along With You
A society adjusts to new superpowers after the sun and moon disappear. A young woman tries to stop her parents' tragic deaths. A demon wreaks havoc because he's upset about New York style pizza. These are just a few of the stories you'll find inside Everything That Came Along With You, a collection of poems and prose written by New York City teens. For five weeks, these young writers worked with volunteers from 826NYC and Row New York to write original pieces that push the boundaries of what's expected. The writing is honest and vulnerable and speaks to experiences of overcoming fear, the search for home, and the joy of family surprises. From speculative fiction to personal narrative and poetry, Everything That Came Along With You is at once heartbreaking, hilarious, and an unforgettable look into the imagination and experiences of young writers.
Proceeds from the sale of this book benefit 826NYC, a nonprofit organization encouraging the exploration of endless possibilities through the power of writing.
