Biography

Teen Board Member

Aurora, Oregon

I’m 16-years-old and a junior in high school. I like to spend my free time volunteering at my local library, writing and, of course, reading. My favorite books to read are sad contemporaries; especially when the main character is part of the LGBT+ community, has a mental illness and/or is a minority. I’m also a huge advocate for diverse books! If I had to choose a favorite movie I’ve ever watched it would have to be Coraline, though I still haven't gotten around to reading the book. You can often find me reading/volunteering in a library or in my bedroom watching BookTube videos.

Top Five Favorite Books:
1. MORE HAPPY THAN NOT by Adam Silvera
2. ARISTOTLE AND DANTE DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE by Benjamin Alire Saenz
3. MORE THAN THIS by Patrick Ness
4. JACKABY by William Ritter
5. FALLING INTO PLACE by Amy Zhang

Brooke Danvers just has to fake it long enough for her parents and teachers to let their guard down, so she can end her life without anyone to stop her. Then Brooke meets Derek, the only person who really gets what Brooke is going through. As they start spending more time together, Brooke suddenly finds herself having something to look forward to every day. But when Derek’s feelings for her intensify, Brooke is forced to accept that the same relationship that is bringing out the best in her might be bringing out the worst in Derek --- and that Derek at his worst could be capable of real darkness.
