I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson - Review by Kathleen, Teen Blogger

We all have people who inspire us: teachers, actors, actresses, writers, directors, etc. I have my fair share of people whom I look up to, and I thought it would be nice to share some of my author influences. I encourage you all to make a list of individuals who have served as positive inspirations for you as well!
