Sorry to interrupt the book like this, but I really wanna know what you guys think. Please comment below any criticisms or praises. I would love to have reader input for this story, because I want to write something shaped for the readers by the readers. If you want anything in the story let me know, because I am slightly lost for a story line. I have the beginning and ending, but no middle!
