Look At Me, a science fiction short story by Vera Brook, was first published in Youth Imagination Magazine, Issue 43, in December 2016.
If Maddie wants Ethan to notice her, she has to act fast – before her school switches to tele-attendance, and she may never see him again.
Here is how the story starts:
Maddie punches in the codes for what she wants and the display on the printer comes to life. It’s a pair of jeans so dark that they look almost black, a blue sweater, and white sneakers. The outfit looks vaguely familiar. Didn’t she print one just like it a few weeks ago? Maddie shrugs. Doesn’t matter. It’s not like it’s still “hanging in her closet,” if that’s the expression. It disintegrated by the end of the day. As does everything the printer prints.
