If there is one thing that I am never without, it is a book. I have devoted much of my being to the art of storytelling; whether that be through the 'big screen' or on the pages of the newest young adult novel, I could not imagine a life any better than immersing oneself in a completely different story. Without stories, we have nothing. I am thrilled to be a member of the new Teenreads.com Teen Board because I will be able to share novels with others who are just as passionate about books as I am. I look forward to the adventures to come, because as F. Scott Fitzgerald said, "You don't write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say."
