Hi everyone! I am Pranshu and I'm 15 years old. I currently live in Norman, Oklahoma. I'm so excited to be a part of the Teen Reads Teen Board! I love reading (you can probably tell). Losing yourself in a book, falling in love with the characters, screaming at the book when something bad happens...I love it all. I also love telling others what I think about books and discussing different aspects of the book and what I liked and didn't like. I am very thankful that I am going to be a part of this website and am really looking forward to sharing my love of books with you all :D
