Today's my birthday, and I'm having a big party. Cake, balloons, flowers, all courtesy of my mother's new husband, Mr. Bell. However, there's only one thing I want for my birthday this year, or rather one man.
There are some minor grammatical issues and a couple instances where the author mentioned something happening for the first time, twice. It wasn't hard to read and it flowed (lots of puns!) well.
Although if this occurred under any other circumstances, I'd have said the main character was a thief for erase she did to her step brother. I'm going to give it a pass because of the purpose of these books.
Also, I don't know if this is usual for these types of stories, but a good 25% or so of it was just excerpts from other books by the same author.
