In Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum, siblings Nick, Cass and Kevin must face down a fierce robot army bent on destroying all of human kind. Inspired by the novel, we challenged you to write a story about someone who has to outsmart their enemy. You wrote, voted, and we sent the top ten most-hearted stories to Gregg for judging!
Check out the winners and Gregg’s comments below, and be sure to congratulate your fellow Figs!
Gregg says: “Certainly not a “fun” story . . . what it’s depicting is brutal. But it’s very well done, and I was especially impressed with the writerly use of 2nd person mixed with 1st person. Unusual and daring, and it could have flopped, but instead it worked. The best work always takes risks!”
Well done, Camille! You will recieve a copy of Revolution 19.
Gregg says: “I loved how the tone and language worked to convey the fairy tale atmosphere. Romantic fantasy, told with a mythical flair. Excellent.”
Congratulations, Kalia! You will recieve a copy of Revolution 19.
Gregg says: “This has an otherworldly, almost manga-esque quality to the tone that I really enjoyed. Cool action mixed with romance. Nicely done.”
