Andrea Murray’s love of English didn’t begin until high school. In fact, in elementary school, she hated reading and never read a book unless she was forced to read. She found her joy as a ninth grader when she began reading classic short stories like “The Most Dangerous Game” and “The Cask of Amontillado”.

My mother has told me (and everyone else) that her grandmother was Native American, but . . . it's not showing up, which leads me to wonder what the real story is and why did she (my great-grandmother) lie.

Thanks for the question!(less)
