Monkey Island And Missing May
350 wordsMonkey Island and Missing May were both very well written fictional books. I did not think Missing May was believable though.

1,153 wordsby David K. Phillips CLARIFIED When one mentions the term 'dating' it can produce, on the ambivalence continuum, feelings ranging from delightful bliss to genuine confusion or even aversion. Before I begin, let's bring some definition to this often nebulous term 'dating'. Webster defines dating simply as: 'to have social engagements with persons of the opposite sex'. In a casual sense, therefore, dating can certainly mean hanging out with the opposite sex for non-romantic purposes. Some of these...
