Myth Debunked: YA Edition
~So. Currently, I'm slightly sickish. I have a sore throat and I've been feeling pretty lazy, or rather, lazier. In the rare instances I do get sick, my mom enjoys pouncing on me, all like: "See, I told you? See, see, see? I told you, you should've worn your coat/scarf/earmuffs/gloves on a perfectly normal day."
Now, I'm eating Combos and I present to you: a new blog feature. Myth Debunked: where I summarize books - some badly, some not - and leave you either clueless, shaking an annoyed fist or praising my talent. The latter is unlikely. Sound off!
