Wait. What? Yeah, you’re just going to have to read the book to find out. I really try not to spoil these books with my “reviews”, but it’s really hard not to give some detail.

During a recent trip to the library, I spotted this book on a small table with books marked as “Last Chance!” I assumed that this meant the books on the table were about to be removed from circulation if they weren’t borrowed soon.
