Due or Die - Jenn McKinlay

I know Ms. Cole is aggravating, but I'm getting a little tired of the physical descriptions of her in this book. So far we have this:

 

"Instead of softening her mannish features, however, the pastel colors seemed to wash out the skin tone on her portly person, leaving her looking a bit jaundiced." (20-21)

 

and this:

 

"Today was a gray day for Ms. Cole. It was an unfortunate choice, given that her broad frame already lent her the appearance of a large land mammal - the gray just narrowed down the species." (62)

 

Ugh, please stop. Just stop.
