What’s Left of Me Short-Story Contest Finalists

What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang is set in a world where everyone is born with two souls, but society has determined that one soul must eventually fade away. Fifteen-year-olds Eva and Addie share the same body, but by this point, they should have “settled.” Everyone thinks that Eva has disappeared, but she hasn’t. For three years, they have kept their secret from everyone, including their parents.

Then Addie and Eva meet someone who could help Eva learn to move again. It’s risky: Hybrids are are considered dangerous and if they get caught, Eva could disappear for good. But for Eva, the chance to move in her own body—to dance and sing and speak—are worth the risks.

Inspired by Addie and Eva’s dark secret, we challenged you to write a story about someone who has to hide some aspect of their identity. You wrote and voted, and now we’re pleased to announce the finalists that will be sent to author Kat Zhang for judging!
