"I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun."
I am 17 years old & I love books. I am a reader. I love the fact that you get to experience new worlds & meet new people (yes I know that they aren't real, but still). These worlds & people teach you so much. You become the character in books. The words describe so much that you actually feel the emotions, you see the world, & you see the character. The hidden messages in the books teach you about life, traits, & how things can affect other things.
Katniss Everdeen teaches you the true meaning of the fact that sacrifice is sometimes worth the pain, that hard work will always pay off, that compassion is just as important as strength, & that admitting that you're hurting is not a weakness. She is the number one idol from all the books I have ever read. And trust me, I've read a lot of books. If I ever chose to be someone, I would choose her. I want to be the Katniss that is hidden inside of me.
