Exit Strategy: 03/10/08
"Exit Strategy" by K. D. Wentworth is the fourth story in the March issue. So far it is my favorite for its humor and its look at the difficulties both teens and parents face.
Charlsie decides she's had enough with life. She isn't in any of the cliques at school. Her essay got a C- and her dad is too bossy. She decides to donate her body to the Church of the Second Life.
Through Charlsie's half hearted attempt to kill herself and give her body to someone else we learn how the Church of the Second Life works. We also hear from Charlsie's dad that the Church is a cult and he vehemently tries to keep her away from them. All of this comes to a head for a very funny but touching end.
