Crash Tested

Pop Fiction

Dummies! No, we’re not talking about the nation’s political candidates. We refer to actual dummies– the crash test kind. (Quite appropriate, as this website is based in Detroit. Did we feed to our featured writer, Dave Petraglia, inside information?)

Petraglia’s story asks: What happens when a crash-test dummy desires a change? What kind of a change? Read¬†“Crash Tested” and see. The story is very 2016!

In the process, Sean had skipped the childhood admonitions, the isolation and suffering, and found that in the catalog of human emotions and her reactions to them, she was not who she’d been molded to be.
