'Please, Jennifer. I know it will help.'

'All right, relax. Just breathe. Pepermint tea, coming up.'

Once she's gone, I groan. I know exactly what's wrong. I am a gluttonous, gorging failure. A waste. My body isn't used to high-sugar carbs laced with witchcraft. It can barely cope with soup and crackers.

What a great book. I loved all the characters, because none of them were perfect, and they screwed up. So of course they all seemed very real. I also loved the way Anderson wrote, using blank pages, pages full of the same text over and over, as well as writing something down and then striking it out. Each adding layers to the character.
