And What Does Jaylene Think?

Is it proximity to Angela? Do all Laura's great comments mean nothing to Jaylene because of the river between them? Apparently. In a brief but clear email to this reporter Jaylene has chosen to move Flash Burnout forward. Here is her reasoning: 1. She learned more in this book than Whisper 2. Photographic advice at the beginning of chapters was a bonus 3. Page 213 ties things together nicely 4. Hurdles are not for Jaylene Cryptic indeed.....I guess I have to read to fully understand - hope it's clear to those that have.


  1. Sigh. I'll be the loser dissenter. All of my comments from Angela's post still apply.
    I'm not sad to see this book move on, but I just have different taste. Guess it was good there was a panel this time around!
