  1. Well done, Nastya!
    That's a very interesting choice of the books :) I haven't ready any of them but the last but I think I might want to read them.
    Now to the use of English.
    Please, mind the following:
    Blurb 1
    1. The difference between 'story' and 'history'. What word should be used in the blurbs?
    2. The word 'female' is too formal for this kind of writing. Choose 'girl/young woman'.
    3. 'female despair' possessive case? 'her bag' - 'mom's bag'; 'her despair' - ...?
    4. There's an article missing in Blurb 1. Can you find the spot for it?
    Blurb 2
    1. 'doesn't leave the house, communicate' - it's better to use 'or' to link those verbs
    2. The 2nd sentence needs a subject. Who receives it?
    3. it should be 'one a month'
    4. ' by that person parting with which brings it' - person with 'who' or 'which'? which brings it? her?
    Blurb 3
    1. Again, 'history' or 'story'?
    2. Article 'the' is missing in several sentences in Blurb 3. Find the right spots for it. :)

    Please, correct the mistakes.
    Thanks for your blurbs!
