The good news is you still have your scarf and more importantly the amulet.

Hint: Feel brave, not discouraged. As you read the story again make the decisions you would make as if there yourself, not what you think the book wants. If the book could want anything, I would want you to read me over and over again. You were on the right track!<8=o)--BACK- to Novel.
