Biography

Kaela N.

Teen Board Member

Hi, my name is Kaela! Once upon a time I was a quirky little girl who discovered the world of books and never turned back. Similar to most of the Teen Board members, reading books could be considered my favorite activity. You can often find me sitting in the middle of class head down in a book and not paying attention to that day's lesson (please, don't attempt this at home). When I am not reading I am a huge thespian, and a year from now I hope to be at a college of my choosing studying pre-med.

Top Five Favorite Books:
1. THE PRINCESS BRIDE by William Goldman
2. EVERY EXQUISITE THING by Matthew Quick
3. Graceling Realm series by Kristin Cashore
4. ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE by Anthony Doerr
5. I'LL GIVE YOU THE SUN by Jandy Nelson

Lie, cheat and maybe even steal…

Natasha believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. She's definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when her family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Daniel is the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. Something about Natasha makes him think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store --- for both of them.
