This "book" was 104 pages short. While the story was not terrible, $9.99 for it is a rip off. B&N needs to make page counts clear in these listings, I never would have bought a short book like this in the store for that much. I could have read it in store for free.

it was terrible all zeros but i had to votr a freakin star bools a rip off
