This book was not for me. I was confused and still can't tell you what it was all about. It just didn't go anywhere. I found myself struggling to get through it and at times falling asleep, then I would have to re-read the page to figure out what it was about then fall asleep again. I loved the first 40 pages when Miffany found the letter in the jacket then had to do what the letter said then she would get another letter. When she had to pick between doing A or doing B then choosing which way she wanted to go then getting another letter. That made it interesting almost like a scavenger hunt. After that it went flat and you lost me. If the story would have continued on the scavenger hunt path I probably would have liked it, but going in the direction that it did I just didn't like it. I'm so sorry but I thank you for choosing me in Goodreads first reads drawing. Good Luck on your next book.
