The Dangerous Reality of Energy Drinks by Mia Ciano, Raynes Park High School.

Envisage a teenager- it’s 8:30 in the morning, and she treads into class. While one would expect this adolescent to be weary- fatigued even- for it is so early in the morning, this teen in particular is wide awake, thoughts spinning endlessly within her head. Every idea, notion and event from her short-lived morning is already replaying in her mind, demanding thorough analysis. Shaking scrupulously as she removes her backpack, her hands are frailty and caution. Her skin takes on a glossy shine and salty drops of sweat invade her eyes- hair plastered to her scalp.
