Danica Myerson contributed the following three stories set among a group of students all in the same psychology class.

It's Not Always Easy – Diane and Abby were best friends. Then Jack entered their lives. Will competition over a cute guy ruin their friendship?

What The Eye Can't See – Who would have guessed that underneath Kelly's silent, sweet personality there was a dangerous and violent girl waiting for her chance to come out?

A State of Mind – Chain letter e-mails don't mean anything. They're only superstition. Right?

The Premonition by Seth King – Greg awakens from a bad dream convinced that something awful is going to happen that day. His older sister insists that he's reacting to nothing more than an overactive imagination. Proving that his nightmare was indeed a psychic premonition will come at a terrible price.

Lois Young provided three thoughtful essays for the collection.

Sample text:

One was the best of classes, the other was the worst of classes. The two women were supposedly so alike, yet they were so different. They were friends, but we knew not why.

Both of them were teachers in the same school and both of them taught the sixth grade. If you didn't know their personalities, you might assume that you were dealing with two quite similar people. You'd be wrong!

I was there. I knew their personalities. Walking into Mrs. Pine's classroom was a totally different experience than walking into Miss Wonick's classroom. (The names have been changed to protect both the guilty and innocent alike.)
