Moooresville, North Carolina

Hello there. My name is Tejaswi, but I prefer to be called Teja. I'm 14 years old, and I come from Mooresville. Never heard of it? Neither did I until I moved there. Why do I like books so much? Well because they help you get away from reality, which is something I appreciate. I have other hobbies too. I'm a tiny bit maybe-a-little-too obsessed with music. I also like watching YouTube and a couple television shows. Unlike most teenagers, I rather enjoy school. If you haven't already noticed I'm kind of awkward. So yeah, that's me.

Top Five Favorite Books:
1. PRINCESS ACADEMY by Shannon Hale
2. A CHILD CALLED IT by Dave Peltzer
3. IT'S A WONDERFUL DEATH by Sarah J. Schmitt

Lily was only 12 when Luke, a family friend, left. But now, at 14, she feels transformed. She can’t wait to see how Luke will react when he sees the new her. And when her mother tells her that Luke will be staying with them for a while, in the bedroom right next to hers, her heart nearly stops. Having Luke back is better than Lily could have ever dreamed. But then, when they’re alone, he kisses her. Then he kisses her again. Lily’s friends think anyone his age who wants to be with a 14-year-old must be really messed up. Maybe even dangerous. But Luke would never do anything to hurt her...would he?

Sloane isn't expecting to fall in with a group of friends when she moves from New York to Florida --- especially not a group of friends so intense, so in love, so all-consuming. Yet that's exactly what happens. Filled with intense and important friendships, a wonderful warts-and-all family, shiveringly good romantic developments and sharp, witty dialogue, this story is about finding the people you never knew you needed.
