“Oh, okay. So she punched me. Nice. Just what I needed, ya know? Swift hit, nice going me. Punched by a smooth sweetheart. Okay, I deserved that…I’m sorry…blindsighted. Horribly…please, forgive me? I didn’t mean it…really, I didn’t. Caught up in the moment, is all…I’d been a bad girl, then. How can I make it up to you, Mary? I’ll do anything to quell the incessant burning…please…I’ll tell you a tale, if you like. One of whimsy and thrill…of royalty and– and peasantry. And…and…and…chocolate and wine!” That story, dearest readers, is for another time and place. And this is that story, in all its painful glory.

Omigod, You Guys

I thought I could escape her, like any stupid human who got punched in the jaw by God’s wife (or the devil…) and had to deal with the pain, eventually deciding on distracting her and driving away. Yeah, how did that work?

Oh, right. Being railroaded into telling her the story by way of seasonably expedient traffic and/or a rainstorm. It wasn’t the type where you could just leave, either.

This was Noah-in-the-flood rain. This was live-in-a-car traffic. This was oddly hypnotic weather and, with my jaw and now arm arrested by shooting pain, there was nothing I could do except please Her for the freeing of them. So, without further ado, I began to spiel the story with…

christylynnr5: This book was absolutely amazing. It had romance, comedy, and mystery. Sid is a girl that pretends to be a boy and goes to an all boys school. Of course there is going to be romance.

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging. The opening two or three chapters seem quite character-dense but they all soon come to life and there is no padding, filling or wasted time readin...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

gilbertgg: Not a bad book, but the editing needs to be stepped up a bit. The plot seems to work and kept me entertained, though.
