    I read the sample chapters, and I really like it! I’m definitely going to buy the book when I get some extra money! 我很喜欢!
    Page 1: “‘It’s not safe to tell you anymore.'” Should be: “‘It’s not safe to tell you any more.'” Because: “anymore” means “any longer,” while “any more” means “any additional.”

    Page 2: “Lovers often give nine roses to symbolize the eternity of their love, but for her it’s
    difficult to believe right now.” Should be: “…but for her, it’s difficult to believe right now.” Because: You have to use a comma to set the prepositional phrase off from the independent clause that follows it.

    pg 34
    “I thought we we’re going to go to the same college and then we’d register…”

    I think should be:

    “I thought we were going to go to …”

    pg 42
    “What are you talking about? No, of course not. Tammy’s over at Bri’s house right now.”

    I think should be:

    “What are you talking about? No, of course not. Tammi’s over at Bri’s house right now.”
    Earlier in the book you spell Tammi’s name with an “i” instead of a “y.”

    Hi Albert!

    The only thing I saw in the book was, I think, two instances where you wrote looser (as in a looser knot) when you meant loser (as in winner/loser).

    I see this spelling frequently on the internet.
