But as the day she has worked so hard for approaches she finds herself surrounded by unexpected friends, dangerous foes and a memory of her childhood, long forgotten.

You asked me to com back and reread what had been changed, and this is kind of cool! I hope that since there's a Part One, there'll be a Part Two as well... another book or nah?
