I’m Madeline Carey, and I’m an 20 year-old senior at West Virginia University studying public relations and English. I love to write and read almost every teen fiction book that I can get my hands on. I love music, but am completely tone deaf. I love trees but have never actually planted one, and I love the world, I just haven’t had the chance to change it yet.
