One of my students brought the new Rick Riordan The Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus, Book 3) book to me and said it was missing pages. Occasionally we will get a defective book. We’ve had one printed upside down inside its hardback cover and one that had the entirely wrong cover (different title) on it. This one jumped from page 230 to 358 or something like that. I had to call our book jobber to send a replacement, but look where the story abruptly stopped.
That’s just mean.
