Finding Haven

so I'm an aspiring young author. very young.
I'm 13.
I love to write. always have and always will. So recently I have been working on my very first novel. Whether or not it will get published someday or it will even get finished, I have no idea. I sure hope so, but I know that its a long shot, but I want to do this. Its just one of those things. so right now it is just a ton of scattered ideas, but ideas that I love none the less. right now it is titled "Finding Haven"
Here is the synopsis I wrote for it.

Imagine a world with no parents
No boring history classes
Free… everything
Sounds great right? Wrong.
Radiance is just another 15 year old girl living in an encampment in what is left of Washington D.C. after the second great depression and the spread of world wide disease, the earth’s population is down to just a couple thousand, and they all live in the eastern united states.
Radiance didn’t think anything of her and all of the other teenagers’ lives or experiments, radioactivity exposure, and the fences and guards that surround the encampment. Until she meets Blake, with his ideas of government scandal, ideas of them being behind 9/11… but what if those accusations in the past gave them just the idea they needed to start things over, to gain control.
Where were you on 9/11

so if you know me, then you know I'm a major bookworm. I am never not reading a book.
I have read tons of books, too many to name them all but here are some of my favorites:
The Hunger Games trilogy by: Suzanne Collins

Evermore series by: Alyson Noel

The Host by: Stephenie Meyer

The Maze Runner by: James Daschner

The Mortal Instruments series 
and of course all the Twilight and Harry Potter books. 
and as many books as I've read, there are still so many more I want to read.

One of the books on my ever growing list is Branded by Keary Taylor. 
My cousin Jenni actually helped make the cover for this now published book! I cannot wait to read this one!

others on my wish / to read list:

Unwind by Neal Shusterman
thirteen reasons why by jay asher
the scorch trials by james daschener
the forest of hands and teeth by carrie ryan

and soooo many more! there are actually 59 books on my to-read shelf on and I haven't updated that in a few weeks, so who knows how many more I've put my eye on since then!

oh books, I couldn't live without you...
