Stone Skimmers: Stories
By Jennifer Wisner Kelly (Concord, MA)

Stone Skimmers opens in pristine, affluent Old Stonington, Connecticut, where a peculiar fifteen-year-old girl swims for hours each day across the town reservoir, lost to her own obsessions. The popular crowd spies from shore, mocking her strangeness, cozy in their camaraderie, until one betrays the group by befriending the outsider.

Exit 8
By John Bragg (Maine)
P
P
Construction of the nation’s massive Interstate Highway System is underway, tearing north through the Connecticut River Valley. In its path sits the Vermont hill farm that Roland Tuttle’s ancestors settled generations ago, where Roland has spent his entire life — caring for animals, plowing with horses, harvesting by hand. Exit 8 is a story of personal choice, nature’s dark beauty, and the unremarked costs of progress, but most of all it is the story of a man confronted with the loss of the only world he knows and loves.
