Half of it was missing- disintegrated in the hostile environment of my school bag. Two, usually if you stab someone with a knife, they’re dead but the characters don’t believe that.

I finished it at 2: I was hooked when I read the first 17 pages here http: Plot or the lack of one and other Writing Stuff While I was reading this book, the only constant thought I had was: There are little things divkne you read about in the beginning that come together in the end in a satisfying and sweet conclusion, but all the same, I am desperately awaiting the sequel.
