I'm pretty sure this was a free book, but it was a disappointment even so. There was hardly any conflict, since the main character is given the answer right away and it works as soon as she uses it. I think the author thought the main conflict was the decision about letting a best friend go, but even that fell slightly flat.

I bought it on Kindle, and another disappointment was that I thought it was going to be much longer than it was, but over half of the content (the story itself ended at 48%) was promotion for other works. I found it offputting.

I don't like giving bad reviews, and in truth, the story wasn't bad, it just didn't really catch my interest.
