Four Corners of the Sky: Chapters 29-34

This is my fifth diary entry for Big Library Read. I'm at IDPF Digital Book 2013 today, and Book Expo America the rest of the week, so we'll see if I can keep up.

We finally meet Jack, and all I can think of is Clint Eastwood.

We don't hear her voice much, and she hasnt done anything that says who she is other thanfly into atornado. The central question of this book, it seems to me, is "will Annie be seduced into Jack's big scam? Will the reader be seduced as well?

Chapters 35-38
