John's favorite short story is "The Metamorphosis." Sure, Kafka's fable of waking up to discover you've morphed into something that makes everyone tweak speaks to every teenager.
I was the token child every parent wants - student body president, color guard, recipient of the general excellence award, and outstanding music student of the year.
