      The milk stain on your carpet. The slightly ripped page in your book. The two pencil cases you lost in a week. ( I will NEVER forget that.) Mistakes are terrible and embarrassing, and that's why this book is so freakin' good. Which mistakes turned out good * MIRACLE THAT NEVER HAPPENED TO ME* and which seemed creative but ended up a mess( aka electric theater seats, McSpaghetti, world's largest popsicle, pretty but empty building) And which famous scientist\*DIDN'T THINK STUFF THROUGH*and made a total mistake. DO NOT choose to remind me of math now.This book is downright AMAZING and will make you think your own bloopers were the best! 5 stars -grapefruitreviews
