I bought this and I guess I didnt read the description well enough. This is just a short story selling for a full books price. I was excited to see a book from one of my fav. authors just to find out I paid 9 bucks for a 40 page short story.

Love Cecelia Ahern and have read almost every one of her books. I had been looking for this one and was excited to find if for my new Nook. However, I didn't realize it was only a short story and I paid $8 for the 41 pages! It wasn't a bad story but WAY overpriced.

i am a fan of cecelia ahern and i wondered why this book was not sold in the store. Now i see why it is not... it is very quick reading and not worth the money.

Loved the story. I have liked everyone of her books. Like everyone else has put down, it is overpriced for such a short story. You don't know how short until you open it for the first time. That is the only reason I didn't give it more start. Her writing and creativity is great as usual. Just overpriced for the length. I was looking forward to a longer book. I will look forward to more books by her.
