Biography

Ellie T.

Teen Board Member

Chicago, Illinois

Hello, everyone! My name is Ellie, I am a proud Ravenclaw, a senior in high school and an Illinois resident. Like most of you here, I am also a book fanatic. I love reading books, buying (maybe even over-buying) books, talking about books and arranging my bookshelf. Almost every minute of my life that is not consumed with the harrowing task of school and homework, I spend reading, researching and loving books. I also love listening to Broadway musicals, although I cannot sing to save my life, watching Netflix, and photography. Living with four sisters, reading has become a quiet solace for me amid chaotic daily life and I wouldn't give up my love for books for anything else. I am so excited for this new adventure of being a Teen Board member and cannot wait to get started!

After she gets kicked out of boarding school, Beatrice goes to her uncle’s estate on Long Island. There, Beatrice’s cousin, Hero, runs a struggling speakeasy out of the basement, one that might not make it through the summer. Beatrice and Hero --- along with Prince, his brother John, Benedick and Maggie --- throw all their efforts into planning a massive party to save the speakeasy. Despite all their worries, the summer is beautiful, love is in the air and Beatrice and Benedick are caught up in a romantic battle of wits that their friends might be quietly orchestrating in the background.
