“Did you see that?”

Faye Morgan turned her head so fast that her friends James, Tony and Maria heard the sickening crack of one of her vertebrae.

“See what?” James asked.

“I don’t know,” Faye said hesitating. “It looked like…” she stopped again.

“Looked like what?” this time from Tony.

“I don’t know,” she repeated. “You guys will think I’m silly or overworked or something.”

“No such thing,” James said. “We know that you’re silly and overworked, but the something…we’re not too sure about.” James Mason was the joker of the group.

“I just saw something that looked like…never mind…I just thought I saw something.”

“Well, I see something,” James replied. “I see the guardrail, I see passing brush, I see trees zooming by. Hey, I think we’re in a car going somewhere.”

Faye was glad that she had not told them after all. I mean, who would believe…

Sixteen-year-old Saint International model Tami Williams is French Elle’s December cover girl. The feat is historic on many levels, as Jamaica’s Gleaner reports

Williams is the first Caribbean/Jamaican model, and the youngest black model to grace the prestigious publication’s cover page. This accolade, earned only nine months after first setting foot on the international stage, places the leggy Jamaican teen among the fastest-rising black supermodels in history.

Williams joins a legion of top cover stars, including Lupita Nyong’o, Rihanna, Jasmine Tookes (Victoria Secrets supermodel), and Estée Lauder spokesperson (supermodel) Liya Kibede. In the age of actors asfashion magazine-cover models, many industry insiders see William’s cover as a refreshing departure.

Throughout the book, we can see Driscoll’s journey through life, as if she had saved all of her poems from the age of 12 and published them all at once.
