Cafeteria Confessions

Teenagers packed the cafeteria at Jacksonville High School on the first day of school to catch up on their summers. Assigned summer reading was a topic of discussion for a group of newly minted tenth graders.

"Well, I got halfway through it and went out and bought the book on tape for The Scarlet Letter," said one girl to her friends.

"Well it's not the greatest reading in the world, you know," she continued.

"If they want us to take a break from school then why do they assign this," said another girl.

"I hate reading," she concluded.

"So do I," chimed a buddy.

"That's why I get the books on tape," said the first girl.
