While the body of the book (story) was good, I found Ms. Butfield's indiscriminate use of commas extremely confusing and irritating. Sorry, Ms. Butfield...kudos to you for making the efforts you made as related in your story, as well as writing down and getting it out there. I mostly enjoyed reading it.
