Description:

When Lorabeth decided to fall in love, she knew it wasn't going to be easy. Unlike the bees that she trained, boys were strange, unpredictable creatures. Since the most popular girl in school, Hedda, receives love letters on a weekly basis, Lorabeth thought that taking a peek at those letters would help... or perhaps not. Lorabeth and Hedda are united by a strange deadly fire and a swarm of encroaching predators that threaten the school of apiology. Will Lorabeth be able to find true love and save her school from these mysterious enemies? And what does a coat rack, yellow ribbon, hypnotist, and tapioca have to do with it?

A long tragic tear trickles down my face as I gaze longingly at absent friends, frozen in my imagination…If I wait any longer I may have to resort to the adverse practice of FanFiction and write my own ending.

Kim, don’t make me do that!

Gack, it's another one: Chapter 8, Lorabeth has just 'finished' her homework and is going to bed. Moira turns the lights out. "The two lamps acted like twin stars amongst the shadows the room". I think it's supposed to be "shadows of the room" but I'm not sure exactly how you were trying to word it.

Geesh! Typo: Chapter 3, fourth paragraph from the bottom of the part where Lorabeth sees Jenny and Paul together. You say "Lorabeth back away" instead of "Lorabeth backed away". Also, the paragraph right after that: "Springtime bloomed in summer." do you mean to say "Springtime bloomed into summer"? Not as sure of that one. I will tell you how brilliant I think this is when I've finished it!

Ooh, another riving chapter. A suspense – who-done-it novel, with clues you are dropping now, we will see come to light when all is wrapped up in the end. I love it!!! A few confusion points: “I shouldn’t worry about her,” Lorabeth said out loud as she entered her empty dorm room. And she collapsed on her bed…” that might cut down a bit on the separate necessary details. “staring at her father’s poster, more (take out “so”) lost in thought…” sounds better when reading it out loud. She patted her pant(s) with. Otherwise you are talking about a type of breathing “pant”, which you can’t “pat” The plastic skull (earrings she wore) grinned. “caught under a reporter’s lens…singing in the shower” ?? How would a photo show that “singing”? Because once the curtain was draw back to take the photo, probably all that was seen in a photo was an outraged person trying to cover private areas. Maybe try something less obtrusive like blowing bubble-gum bubbles, or skipping rope, or hula-hooping. So whatever he’d say next could probably (be) disregarded. “And the yellow ribbon had to be the (starting point)” Makes more sense to me, otherwise it sounded as if the ribbon itself started the events. This is my favourite story of yours so far (haven’t got into Olivia – you told me to wait –and dutifully, I am)

Pg. 25 Loved the line: “He pulled at his beard while he stamped and shouted, as if it was the string that could make a doll speak.” Gives the wonderful image that he just repeats words by rote. It didn’t seem that any of Buddings words were “curse” words (swearing). Perhaps what he was throwing around sounded more like “dogmas” And what does Headmistress mean when she says “Nothing yet” was stolen. Does she mean “nothing that I could see” or was she expecting something in particular to be stolen and they hadn’t stolen it yet? It seems she knows more than she is saying, or I’m reading between the lines, or maybe you didn’t mean to write “yet” just yet. Now I’m confusing myself.
