Thunder Was the Only Thing I Could Hear

$ 12.00

A young girl yearns to meet her estranged father. A group of friends make a rap video that goes viral. Two teens fight zombies during the apocalypse. These are only some of the stories in Thunder Was the Only Thing I Could Hear, a collection of short stories, memoirs, and personal essays written by 8th graders in the MS 7 East Harlem Writers' Room. Throughout the school year, students worked on a variety of creative writing projects, and now, finally, the best of their work is in your hands.

Proceeds from the sale of this book benefit 826NYC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students, ages six to eighteen, with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.
