Jordan Sun is a theatre girl who’s low range makes it virtually impossible for her to land a role in her school’s productions. Solution? Cross-dress as a man, join an acapella group, and challenge the ways of the school.
Noteworthy is a contemporary novel that takes a couple of cliche ideas (girl dressing as a guy, acapella competitions, etc.) and brings them up in a new way. The story creeps its way through regular high school drama with some slightly less regular high school drama, but the captivating part of it is the characters—charming, diverse, and memorable. Despite all of this, though, the story disappoints in the realm of diversity, rushes the ending, and plays into a few too many tropes.

Welcome to the world of C.T. Callahan where you can find short stories, book reviews, artwork, and the novel Plastic Wings.
When seven-year-old Evie Weiss discovers a strange, sickly boy in her otherwise familiar forest, she has no idea what it holds for her world. He is a dark angel, one of a race of humanoid beings that feed on humanity and tear Evie’s world down around her.
Years later, as humanity mounts a counter-attack against the dark angels, Evie remembers the boy in the forest and finds herself torn between her loyalty to her own people and feelings of compassion for these strange creatures that first captivated her as a child. It is the quest of one girl to unite two worlds so separated by war, but how can she close the gap between two races so determined to hate each other?
