Vince Luca, the main character in "Son of the Mob" by Gordon Korman, is just like any other high school guy. He has a weird best friend, an annoying older brother, family around him all the time, and a father that wants him to get involved and get motivated. There's just one problem with this picture-perfect life: Vince's father is the leader of one of the most powerful crime organizations in the U.S. - the Mafia. Vince's life is obviously far from perfect. Mob members come in on a regular basis disguised as uncles.

Ever wish you lived during the Renaissance period? You know, with the whole chivalry code and all that? Well, the best you can do is go to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. They have everything: food, weaponry, medieval clothing, human chess and great improv actors. It's exactly like the early Renaissance, minus the terrible diseases roaming the streets. I went with three of my friends, one of whom is Pulse photographer Ana Jantz. The faire looked promising immediately, with rock walls surrounding the whole outside of the Shire, as the village is called.

What significance does April 23 have? It's the day traditionally celebrated as William Shakespeare's birthday. Although his is a household name, little else is known about William Shakespeare. He was born in 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, and is said to have died on his 52nd birthday. Thirty-seven of his plays survive, a significant portion of those that are known from the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods, as well as 154 sonnets and several epic poems. Shakespeare's career as a writer reverberates in our culture even today.

FAYETTEVILLE, Pa. -- They act, sing, write and produce from London to New York City, but what they have most in common are their roots. It was at Totem Pole Playhouse's summer theater camp in the 1990s that a group of friends from the Tri-State area first fully discovered a love of drama. Now, the women have carved out careers in the arts. "We're all recognized as young people in our profession, but we're nowhere near 'making it,'" Jessica Beck said. Beck directs shows for London's Theatre 503. Her younger sister also is in Europe, writing a play about Jean Charles de Menezes, a Brazilian tourist shot by the London Metropolitan Police in 2005.

WASHINGTON COUNTY Getting a car seemed a little more exciting when she was 16, before gasoline prices crept toward the $3-per-gallon mark. Like many young drivers, Katie Everhart, 17, of Hagerstown, has to pay for her own gas. And with the high prices, she said she barely can afford to buy anything else. "I have a lot less money to spend," said Katie, who holds a part-time job at a Hagerstown bookstore. "Basically, I have a $200 check, and $100 of it goes to gas. " Though the more than 3,000 drivers 18 and younger account for only 3 percent of all licensed drivers in Washington County, according to the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration, they still are feeling the brunt of the high cost of gas, especially when tapped-out parents refuse to pay for it. Gasoline in Maryland is averaging around $2.99 per gallon, according to the most recent AAA Mid-Atlantic figures.
