Tell us your worst summer vacation in six!
« on: June 02, 2013, 09:45:52 PM »
For the newest six-word challenge, we're asking you to think back to your most memorable miserable summer break. Whether you found yourself stuck on the road trip from hell or a closeted atheist at bible camp, we want to hear about it.

Post in comments here by June 30 and we'll pick two winners to receive "Things Don't Have to be Complicated: Illustrated Six-Word Memoirs by Students Making Sense of the World," an e-book with TED Books, or "I Can't Keep My Own Secrets," the first book from SMITHTeens. We'll announce winners here and on the forums at the beginning of next month!

Really, I just wanted to read.
My summer romance kind of sucked.
We didn't go to the beach.
Sunburn and heartache gang up. Help!
I saw this coming from March.
