    Summary

    In the spring of 1899, a girl from the Scots-Irish tenements stuffs her braids into a newscap. In the summer, she is a witness to the newsboy strike that changed The World. In the fall, Jack Kelly and his boys enjoy an unfamiliar abundance of work, play, and pocket change. But winter brings sickness. Where can Jack turn when his friends' lives are at stake?

    (T rating for allusion to/themes of assault, miscarriage. Minor foul language, mostly-wholesome physical affection.)

    It is the year 2030. Society has collapsed and fallen to the mercy of a corrupt political system.

Albert Snyder has spent all 16 years of his life living and working in the Refuge, along with his father (Warden Snyder) and brother (Oscar Snyder). His job is keeping the shards locked away, but what will he do when he discovers that he is a shard himself?

    Summary

    Davey Jacobs had been teaching at Newsboy Primary School for years now. Known as one of the more serious and strict teachers, he’s very much surprised when it’s announced that he'll be the one directing the school nativity. Partially considering he’s Jewish. To make things worse, he’s assigned a teaching assistant who can be a tad chaotic. A shared ex, a little white lie, and a festive miracle make it a Nativity none of them will ever forget

    Summary

    After surviving the Hunger Games, Davey Jacobs and Jack Kelly are still trying to adjust back to a normal life. Except there's no chance of a normal life ever again, not while they live in the public eye and their choices are not their own, and even their relationship is tainted by the Capitol's influence. Then, just as they think they might be finding some stability, the universe throws one last surprise at them.

    Now Davey and Jack are going back into the Hunger Games, but this time, they have no intentions of playing along with the president's rules. They are, after all, the Newsboys of Manhattan, and it's their responsibility to spread the news. And when they're through, the whole world will know.

    Summary

    The newsboys go to band camp and try a lot of their typical shenanigans ranging from creating hybrids of instruments to spilling cheese into the salad bar. Of course, there's going to be some stuff that is completely wild because DUH what's band camp without a little wildin'. Yes, band is a family, but every band has to have a few couples. Right?

    ***Note to reader: Some of these silly incidents are actually experiences I've had in real life during band camp/performances. I hope you enjoy reading this story!

    DISCLAIMER: Newsies and their characters aren't owned by me. The only things that I own are my writing and ideas! I am NOT making a profit off this! I just write for fun!

    Summary

    They all bickered and chatted some more, enjoying Les' party. Crutchie and Jack obviously became a lot more comfortable with the crowd. Sarah "accidentally" tripped onto Jack via tall-ass heels, at which she smirked when David made a point to look away. Jack and Les hit it off real well, with the latter telling stories of his rather eventful childhood. Race nearly got punched, shot, and stabbed in the same 10 minutes by three different people, so. Good times.

    Soon, the party had died down enough until it was just Crutchie, Jack, and David. Race had to go do some business (which probably meant flirting with someone extremely out of his league), and Sarah and Les were helping their parents cleanup (not without Sarah winking mischievously at David as she walked away).
