Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Hruta does figure out how to reverse the spells, and becomes a better person in the process.

The story is quite funny, with gems like trying to tutor kids in trigonometry, knowing that it probably won't work and probably won't matter if it does work.

Con: The last couple of paragraphs are awkward. We didn't need to have the meaning of the story explained to us.
