The Teen Wire: The irony of it all

by Daniel Morizono

We learned last year in English class about the power of irony. This is a theme that appears sometimes overtly and sometimes quietly, in almost every literary work. More than any device in an author's toolbox, irony has the power to turn a story on its head. Just as you think you are heading in one direction, irony will flip you in another and upend your expectations. A wise reader then can never know for certain how the story will end.
