And I still loved Ball & Chain except for that one scene. And I still love Ty and Zane. And my dearest wish is a sequel to According to Hoyle.
And that reminds me... y'know what else? I often wish authors wouldn't listen to their fans and create stories about characters that were better left as supporting characters. Not every best friend, mouthy next-door neighbour or high school enemy needs their own book. Seriously.
