Well you could avoid having to visit either store since some idiot librarian made a copy available for someone to photograph, scan, and distribute all over the internet!
The entire book - yes, I mean the entire book. Photographed and available for download all over the place five days before release and not one word from Scholastic or Bloomsbury about this colossal security leak.
Apparently, they decided that librarians could open their shipments early to "catalogue" the books.
In fact, you might wish to skip the party - I know I am considering it. I am supposed to take my daughter and her best friend, but you just know that there will be several people more than happy to shout out plot twists, character deaths, and revelations all night long.
The whole thing is a disaster.
