This book is truly unique and inspiring. In the first week i had it, I made four of the projects, and they turned our really beautifully. I love the easy, breezy style. And it's a great value, with 1010 projects it will keep me going for a while!
Blue comes from a city called "SingleCity". SingleCity is a corrupt and greedy city hose people have no freedom of apeech or anything. All have to have a single name and one purpose in life: a job. Defects were killed when they were born. Defects are kids born with abilities or more than one purpose in life: to save SingleCity and take down President Day. But unlike the rest, Blue was spared. She grew up doing what normal singlecity residents did: work. Blue thought that it was time to take down president Day so she set out to find the resistence, singlecity residents who want to stop President Day. Blue befriended a teddy bear , which is actually a real bear but changes form because of foreigners in its territory, named Seven. Blue has the power to summon anything out of he air at anytime and she can even multiply things. And that's my history! Hop u enjoyed it.
