Did you know — While most times Sterling can be found with a basketball in hand or swishing layups and three-point goals at the teen center, Yano Fitness Center or the high school gym, Sterling says she’s also an avid reader. Her favorites are Veronica Roth’s Divergent and Anna Todd’s After series. “A lot of action,” Sterling said of what she calls “page-turner” books. “Keeps me reading.”
