100 Things I know About Annie by ImpulsiveWriter321 reviews
Auggie lists 100 things he knows about Annie - and then expands on them. *Some chapters may be made M* "I haven't read The Little Engine That Could yet." I stood there a second, absorbing her words. Then I laughed and stepped forward to sit on the ground next to her. Leaning forward, I laid my head gently on her lap. "Go for it."
