    Too short

    The book was only 13 pages and rather pointless. I did not see the point in paying a dollar for a 13 page, mediocre book. Honestly, the book was not that good. Mary pearson has the ability to do way better. Look at the adoration of Jenna Fox!

    This thing sucks!

    DO NOT BUY IT! This seemed like a GREAT book, so I bought it, and it turns out the whole thing is 27 pages! Why did I even pay for this! Great plot, but, could you bother to write more for heaven's sake!

    I thought it was a great short story

    This short story takes place after Allys gets sick in the 1st book. Her parents went to Jenna's father for help. This starts with her waking up and realizing she's different. The story shows her anger at her parents and at Jenna. Finally at the end we see when she comes to terms with what happened.
