Praise for young author

 

In response to: “Voice of her time: At 25, ‘Divergent’ author Roth is tuned in to her YA demographic (March 21)”:

This letter is a little late from when it was released but it has taken me time to come up with the right words on how this author has affected me. To me, Veronica Roth is a person who has showed that age and experience has nothing to do with talent. She has so much talent and I wish that in the future I could be like her.

Roth made me feel that it’s possible for me to have a story out, and that really means a lot. What I most admire is that she was brave enough to put herself out there and publish her book. That takes guts.

Her work is detailed with amazing characters, and it feels real when I got really into the novels she has written. I can’t wait to read more of her works in the future.
