This is a spare copy, for release. (I originally intended it for a book ray). I expect I'll take it to the Village Hall OBCZ.

As it is, they haven't told her about the curse, leaving her - and everyone else - confused about her inability to express herself. During the book, however, she develops her own brand of biting sarcasm...
