    Riveting storytelling that leads us in unsuspecting steps toward a very unexpected denouement! Beautiful!

    Heartened -- Curious -- Shocked -- Pained.
    A well written monologue descriptive beyond words.

    MonologueBank heartily recommends the writing of Lindsay Partain. BACKFIRED is haunting. You feel deeply attached to ANNA in the short period of time you spend with her. At first, ANNA's musings are that of a typical teenage girl, but they become more harrowing and unnerving as the reality of the situation becomes apparent. It is a terrifying story, that has become a reality for far too many teenagers. Partain manages to show the serious need for change without pointing fingers.
