Hello Teenreads visitors! My name is Linnea and I'm 15 years old, but turning 16 this September. I am absolutely in love with reading and everything that comes with it. There's nothing better than losing yourself in a novel, falling in love with the characters and emerging in a new world. Plus, when the book ends, it never really ends --- there's still the whole community that comes with it! But, of course, reading is not my only passion. I also love writing, playing lacrosse and hockey, and drawing. I'm so grateful for the chance to be a part of Teenreads and I can't wait to share my thoughts with everyone.

In 1934, Irène Curie, working with her husband and fellow scientist, Frederic Joliot, made a discovery that would change the world: artificial radioactivity. This breakthrough allowed scientists to modify elements and create new ones by altering the structure of atoms. Curie shared a Nobel Prize with her husband for their work. But when she was nominated to the French Academy of Sciences, the academy denied her admission and voted to disqualify all women from membership. Four years later, Curie’s breakthrough led physicist Lise Meitner to a brilliant leap of understanding that unlocked the secret of nuclear fission. Meitner’s unique insight was critical to the revolution in science that led to nuclear energy and the race to build the atom bomb, yet her achievement was left unrecognized by the Nobel committee in favor of that of her male colleague.
