Title: Inside Out
Author: Terry Trueman
Genre: Fiction
Summary: “Time… grime… pantomime… long-gone is a wong-gong long gone” These are some words that run through innocent Zach’s mind day in and day out. These run through his mind because Zach has schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a long-term mental disorder involving a breakdown in the relations between thought, emotion, and behavior, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings. He finds that if he takes all of his medication on time he doesn’t hear the voices that are usually with him. So he meets his mom at the same coffee shop every day after school for medicine. But it is going to be hard for him to take it when he and eight other people are taken hostage while the coffee shop is being robbed. Inside the coffee shop are Zach, two robbers, two old ladies, two employees, a mother and daughter, and two businessman.
The robbers where a couple of young brothers Alan Mender who was 17 and Joey Mender who was 14. Throughout the robbery Joey was super nervous and was somewhat aggressive to the hostages. But Alan on the other hand was calm and trying to keep Joey from doing anything more stupid then what they just did. Their plan was to be a quick in and out job. However when a lady driving by saw the two boy’s guns through the window she drove away and called the police. Now that Alan and Joey are stuck there they need to come up with a new plan, How to escape. During this process the robbers have to deal with Zach and his “big mouth” according to Joey. In my opinion Zach might have been the reason that no one got killed because without realizing it he was keeping the robbers attention on him. He was doing this by questioning everything they said, back talking, and reverse phycology. Alan didn’t mind it at all but Joey was getting very mad and wanted to shoot him. Then the police called to offer them a deal. The deal was if they let everyone go they
