Lighting the World
by Merle Drown
Wade Rule reveals to his classmate Maria that he plans to run off to Vermont to escape his domineering mother. When Maria tells him she'd rather run off than live with her father, Wade makes up his mind to take Maria along. But when he shows up at school with a shotgun to fetch her, things go horribly wrong.
