I really enjoyed the book, it will help me a lot in the matter of grammar. I need to take an English test and by the formal use of the words in this story I believe that I will learn a lot until the end of the reading.

I enjoyed this book. It drew me right in. I was glad Temo got the Employee of the Year payout.
