In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.

This is the story of a girl named Edith Skipper.
One day, when her grandmother came to visit her she gave Edith a gift. The gift was a pair of red slippers. Edith didn't like them, and when her grandmother was gone she put them away.
After Edith was walking down a mountain and she tripped. Her ankle was swollen so her feet wouldn't fit in shoes. She had to wear slippers. Edith wore the slippers given by her grandmother for a few months before her ankle healed and Edith's slippers were put away. Over the days wearing them, Edith had grown to like the slippers. When the slippers were taken away she was a little sad. Some days after Edith's parents found the slippers again, and gave them back to Edith.
