Best American Nonrequired Readers interpret "Feral Children"

As far as I know, my story "Feral Children" will not be appearing in the 2008 edition of Best American Nonrequired Reading, which is edited by high school students at 826 Valencia in San Francisco. However, earlier this year, I discovered this transcription of their consideration of the story, and it remains listed in their Top Ten (whatever that means).

But what I loved about their discussion was how their interpretations were all over the place--and yet never far from the mark. It is a strange story. And for those who are interested, you can dig it up in an old issue of Fence.
