Hey! Names Izzy, and I do books too but they are minecraft books. Everyone likes my books, so heres some tips for you: I think you should add more detail to your storys and think about the story in your head: 1. Can i imagein this story in my head? 2. Can i look back and understand the story so far? 3. Do i feel like i know the charecters and they are my friends? Im not saying you did all these wrong, but just keep them in mind! Thx!

She thought it was from Emma. So she read it and it said, 'GO BACK WHERE YOU BELONG YOU ROTTEN DIRT BAG!!!' Katy was confused. So she typed, 'Excuse me? Who is this?' The person didn't answer. Katy ignored it and went to Emma's house. When she got there James and Michael where there too. Everyone there had went to magic school too. "Hey guys did you get a wierd text from someone?"
