Re: 13-year-old authors win writing contest -- for adults, MAY 23.

As a typical 14-year-old girl, I find it really awesome that 13-year-olds Bushra Khan and Taha Hassan won first and second place, respectively, in a writing contest for adults. It is even more amazing because they wrote it not in their first language, which is Urdu, or their second language which is French, but in their third, which is English. This is an excellent accomplishment.

I'm sure that their stories are very creative and worth reading. After all, who better to write stories for young adults than young adults?
