MARTINA GREEN: We’re hearing a clip of AD Massey from Channel Four news, which aired on the night of January seventh. That’s right, listeners. The police actually think Zoe Spanos attempted to motorboat across the Atlantic to the Jersey shore, to board a bus to Philadelphia. And that she succeeded.
Maybe it’s possible, for an experienced boater, which Zoe was not. The police have latched onto the fact that Zoe was majoring in marine biology like it’s some kind of proof she was an expert in all things nautical. News flash: College-level research knowledge of the giant squid does not equal experience with boating or aquatic navigation.

“Bodkin! Get in!” yelled Wish, climbing into the cart at the front of the caravan of carts, and Bodkin climbed into the one at the back beside Xar. Wish pushed up her eyepatch, twitched her fingers… and the linked carts rose in the air, over Encanzo’s head, towards where Looter was dangling.
I had Random.org select a page for me and it went with page 206.
I roll out of the way as the cell door is slammed shut by Pod and Akimi.
We all look at each other, panting in exhaustion, and then Malachai begins to laugh. Akimi joins in, followed by Pander, and then we’re all laughing and cheering and hugging.
It takes a minute for us to catch our breath.
“Alright,” Igby sighs, “what the fuck now?”
“Can we eat?”Akimi asks, “I’m actually starving. All that waiting to die and fighting, you know?”
“Seconded,” Pod says, raising his hand.
