Interview with Marissa

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Actually when i was younger nobody taught me how to really read until about first grade, i was so behind i really had to play ketchup until 3rd grade. I had this teacher and she just really took the time to help me and that's when i really fell into reading. i don't remember the first book i read i just remember picking it up and i felt like i was in the book watching it all like a movie. I'm still that way and when things get rough i slip into another world that is reading.
