Lillian B.

Teen Board Member

Estero, Florida

Hello, my name is Lillian! This year I am a 9th grade freshman in Southwest Florida, and this is my first year working as a Teenreads reviewer. I have always loved to read, but when I'm not reading I can be found running cross country. I have also loved being in the national junior honor society, and student government, being the freshman class president for 2017-2018. Sometimes you'll also find me baking or watching my favorite shows ("The Middle" and "AGT"). I can't wait to meet everyone and work with you all, looking forward to a great year!

Ever since Rosa’s nerve disease rendered her quadriplegic, she’s depended on her handsome, confident older brother to be her rock and her mirror. But when a doctor from Boston chooses her to be a candidate for an experimental brain transplant, she and her family move from London in search of a miracle.
