Sandy asked:

Can some please tell me why everyone feels the need to write a plot synopsis? Seriously, people, a person like me wants to know the value you got from the book, not jacket cover blurb before you offer your insights.

Lynn Rudolph I so agree! I come here for a review....not a book report! I wish people would stop doing that!
Michelle Oh my god I thought it was just me... like I wasn't getting some fundamental part of the goodreads app!! Lol I find it incredibly frustrating that every reviewer writes a synopsis of the story...why?! Hello I can read the authors synopsis. Just tell me what you thought of the dam book?!?
AmyAmy THANK YOU for writing this. I always skim over the book synopsis, or I bypass reviews that go on and on explaining the plot.
