This week's post is from Andrea's new novel, Destiny

My name is Elena Baxter. I’m sixteen. I grew up in a normal household in America’s heartland, but I’m very different from other girls my age. I guess you could say I’m kind of an outsider. Where other girls talk about boys, makeup, and fashion, I prefer to talk about books, life, and the world around me. I’m very close to my family, and I love the tight bond we have with each other.

When I learned the truth about myself on my Sweet Sixteenth, my whole world changed. But I finally found a place I feel I belong, and have made some wonderful friends, the best ones I’ve ever had. My new world has started to open up so many possibilities for me. It’s very scary, but liberating at the same time. I think I’m finally beginning to blossom, and I know that what I could become is greater than anything I have ever thought of.
1. The best Halloween costume I ever wore…

ironically, a witch. I had always wanted to dress as a witch, knowing that Halloween was all about them. When I was thirteen, my mom finally decided I was old enough to portray one. We got a great black robe, a witch’s hat, and a broom. I covered my face with green makeup, donned my costume, and went trick-or-treating. It was the best Halloween ever!

2. When I was younger, I wanted to be a…

teacher. I love school and studying, and I love books. My dream was to become an English or Literature teacher, and teach kids to love books as much as I do.

3. If I were wealthy, I would want to…

Donate to charities all over the world. There are so many causes that need our help, and I’d want to help as many of them as I could.

4. My favorite candy is…

Anything chocolate!
