Burned Short-Story Contest Finalists

Inspired by the Pretty Little Liars’ Caribbean disaster in Sara Shepard’s Burned, we challenged you to write a story about a group of friends who are having fun . . . until danger strikes. And write you did! You wrote and voted, and the Figment editors will read these 50 finalists and narrow them down to five to send to Sara Shepard for judging!
