Castles by Benjamin X. Wretlind @bxwretlind

Castles: A Fictional Memoir of a Girl with Scissors
01/31/13-03/31/13

What would you do to build your castle in the sky?

When Maggie was six, she hid from desert storms under the sink where the Comet and Windex were kept. Now twenty, she welcomes the storms. Maggie has been abused, torn apart by the sins of others and constantly feels as if she is living on the verge of some grand epiphany perhaps passed down through her Grandmother, perhaps given to her by God.

Then again, she may just be insane.
Maggie doesn't know if the four bodies she dismembered and placed inside a rusted Volkswagen Bus are the only bricks left to her castle in the sky, but she hopes you'll understand if they're not. Castles is Maggie's story, a literary horror novel about love and redemption, belief and revenge and what brings a person to madness.
