The Solitaire

“[Three fictional characters that represent me are] Lucy Pevensie: She has an air of innocence and constantly sees the magical side of things. She heals as well, and has a knife. Hermione Granger: She is a bookaholic and won't take no for an answer. I always knew I liked her. Dorothy: Because I love to sing and according to my dad I can get along with everybody. thanks dad.”


Melissa loves purple, will own a dog someday, and will most likely be forever shorter than you. Reading is her passion since books are basically all you need in life and no one will ever convince her otherwise. Van Keuren loves people and making friends. She hopes to become a better writer throughout this program and am looking forward to making the FZW Newspaper.
