"You're not my type."

This is a novella that begs to be re-read once you get to the end of it. There seems to be some dispute whether or not Lise really had everything planned from the beginning. I am of the belief that she did and that the opening scene, where she freaks out about the stain-resistant material makes a lot of sense at the end.

I thought the story was very intriguing and I am torn about the few breaks in the continuity where it goes into what will have happened in the future. In many ways I feel like they are unnecessary, but I can't imagine the story without it or how I would have felt about the ending without all the foreshadowing.
