When All Else Fails, Read Jane Austen
Miz Fitz believes you have found yourself living inside a young adult novel. You have two choices.
1. You can power through to the ending, which may be hazardous. Since this is a YA novel, you can't know for sure whether you will end up as a princess, or as a vampire's lunch. Probably, because you are the heroine, you will be okay, but still—it's a risky business.
2. You can throw the book across the room and re-read Pride and Prejudice, which always ends nicely.
Miz Fitz knows that this is not helpful, and she apologizes. Her cat is yowling for food, and she has spilled tea on her favorite pair of jeans, and she thinks she may be coming down with a cold.
That is all.
