Hello! Thanks for checking out my page. Here are a few fun facts about me. For starters, my name is Savana, I'm 16 and I live in Cincinnati, Ohio. My hobbies and interests include history, reading books and petting dogs. I love Jesus, am borderline-obsessed with Hamilton and I always save change, because it adds up, okay? I am so excited to be able to be a part of the Teen Board this year, and I hope I write reviews you can trust and respect. Reading is one of my biggest passions, and I can't wait to see how this year further expands my love of reading, writing and conversation.

Top Five Favorite Books:
2. ORPHAN TRAIN by Christina Baker Kline
4. THE HATE U GIVE by Angie Thomas

But once Camellia and her Belle sisters arrive at court, it becomes clear that being the favorite is not everything she always dreamed it would be. Behind the gilded palace walls live dark secrets, and Camellia soon learns that the very essence of her existence is a lie, that her powers are far greater, and could be more dangerous, than she ever imagined.
