    MEEEEP

    Seems like a good book except for one teensy-weensy-itty-bitty, tiiiiiiiiiiiiny detail:

    TOO MANY WORDS! This coming from the girl who reads Misconceptions by Sandstorm 3D, Amanda Ackers by GlennAndSasha Gabriel, and The Nexus of Kelleran by (crap I forgot his name! :X).

    FOOD EATER VERDICTA IS OUT! PEACE!
