More bafflying math: During the book blurb discussion, Jaye says that Aaron got 26 words and Sharon got 19. Sharon says she counted 22 words for herself. If Jaye's count is right, the total word count for Aaron and Sharon is 45. If Sharon is right, their total word count is 48. However, when Jaye pouts to the Eric the bartender and Mahandra, she says her siblings got 51 combined.
