Girls with Sharp Sticks
By Suzanne Young
Innovation Academy is an elite boarding school that produces perfect young ladies. Each girl is flawless: beautiful, well mannered, polite, obedient. Their curriculum consists of classes on etiquette, gardening, and household management, with no time wasted on mathematics, science, or literature. Having a hard day? No worries- just a quick session of impulse control therapy should take care of those pesky negative thoughts or emotions. Mena and the other girls are perfectly happy with their lives at the Academy… or are they? Looks can be deceiving.
Blog Discussion: How do you see the ideals of the Innovation Academy reflected in our own society? Does this make you rethink the importance our society puts on being “perfect”?
