Awesome teen author!

I just finished my sophomore year at Wellesley College but I'm originally from Syracuse. My mom is a librarian there and she and my dad (an avid reader) inspired me from a young age to read and eventually to write. I write poetry, articles for a few online organizations, and of course novels! My first novel, Nice Jewish Boys, came out in August!
