Your gift includes this necklace, which has a special meaning that’s revealed when you get to Chapter 16. The rumpled bedsheet, however, isn’t included. ;)

What’s your favorite color?

It’s Thursday, which means it’s official Getting To Know You Day on my Facebook page! Last week we talked about our most dreaded household chore. (Not surprisingly, dusting was high on the list.)
