    As I reached for the book, the beautiful face on the cover truly enthralled me and made me want to read it even more than before. What book cover was it? It was Ink by Amanda Sun.

    Smart: Having or showing quick-witted intelligence. That’s how anyone in my school would describe me; few even know me beyond that one adjective. That girl who was salutatorian in eighth grade and in all those honor classes, yes that is me. But that’s not the real me. To me, I’m not smart-I...
