About the Book:
About the Authors:
Amira Doale is the author of the story of “Jasmine and Clementine.” She is a freshman at Portland High School. The story takes place in the middle of the spring in Damascus, Syria, and while Amira is at school and the city is under attack. The author has a hard problem ending conversations no matter how bad or good they are. In the future, Amira Doale hopes to get a career in the criminal justice field.
Fatimah Lamloom, a sophomore at Casco Bay High School, grew very fond of writing when she first started at The Telling Room. She then wrote the true story, “Soup,” about an experience she had while volunteering at Preble Street that she still applies to her life now. Outside of The Telling Room, Fatimah enjoys singing and going to the beach with her friends and family.
Johan Sifa lives in Portland, Maine, and is a senior at Casco Bay High School. She’s the oldest of four and whenever she has time for herself, she sings, writes, and reads. “The Expression of My Soul” is her first published story. A quirky thing about her is that she enjoys watching Naruto.
