Popular girls

They clump up to each other in the hallway like they are stuck with honey. They build a dam, blocking the river of student bodies. They do everything together, like they all share the same brain. I wonder how much there actually is. They whisper and look at people the same. They think you never know what their saying. But they stand out as if the world was black and white, and they are the only color.

This piece about popular girls is quite remarkable. With an economy of words, the writer paints a revealing portrait of the world of girl cliques as endured by a sixth grader.
