The blurb of this book proudly states Karen is a P-A-I-N. Good to know we're starting with some home truths here, Martin. In this round of BSLS, Karen discovers a new way to annoy her classmates- she's good at spelling! Except that all the words she got her actually kind of age-appropriate, and not things like syzygy or chauvinistic or xylocarp. No, we're talking things here like igloo and proudly and gasoline. Karen ain't going to be on Spellbound any time soon, guys.

Anyway, Karen is a massive brat to her friends and family. She lets it all go to her head, like she normally does. At the end, it's implied that she's learnt her lessons... but she also says that her friends have to forgive her.

Have. To. Forgive. Her.

If they don't, they're on the chopping block. Literally.

Far out, guys, Karen's pretty intense.
