A group of students at a Florida high school wrote and edited novels as part of an eight-month project for their 10th-grade honors English class. Novels ranged in length from 60 to nearly 500 pages and covered genres including mysteries, adventure and fantasy. The project allowed members of the class to develop close relationships as they helped each other write and edit, their teacher said. "I really feel that literature shares more about a person than just talent. There's a big piece of yourself in your work," she said.
