Well, they took my review down! It's obvious what they're doing...they're trying to sell books. Makes ya wonder if Bebe didn't write all the positive reviews herself, using pseudonymns...Oh, well. It's sad for the people who believe it, and end up buying that useless book. Well, they will figure it out for themselves that Bebe is a flake...
