Congratulations to Stephanie Wilkes for winning the first-ever Hub writing competition. Her story summary for “Your Meat, My Poison” was selected by the readers as the best. As a result, she will be heaped with riches and accolades from across the globe. Okay, that might be overstating it, but she will receive this handsome 100% metal paperweight and a 2012 Printz calendar.
In case you didn’t get to read her story summary, here it is in all of its glory:
Suzie is a strict vegetarian and has moved from Idaho, land of potatoes plenty, to Texas â€¦ right next to a cattle farm. As if moving hundreds of miles away from her friends wasn’t enough, now she is witness daily to cows being branded, some being sent for slaughter, and the sounds throughout the night. After a bit of bravery, Suzie decides to confront the farm owner and meets their 19-year old son, Aaron, instead. While he is stacking hay bales. Shirtless. With OMG abs of steel. Instantly they connect and as they become closer and closer, Aaron and Suzie must decide if their relationship is worth the fight.
Thank you again to everyone who participated in our contest. I had a blast reading the stories. They were amazing. I hope they all become books that I can put on my shelf.
