Yo dog! Its katheryn again. Soooooo i finally got around to reading this book. Well its a short story omly 21 pages. I tjough it should have lasted longer. And it should have been cheaper for the qmount of story there accually was. Agatha christie is amazing but this book didnt seem as good. I give it four stars because ot should be longer so we can develop the story a little better. Im gonna go order some blackberry pudding and thick soup! Bahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah! Youll get it once you read the story. His is katheryn sayin god bye and see ya on my next review. Check out my review on the hunger games... look for the title im katniss and i know it
