Ah, good info. I missed that. Yes, it does seem like that would useful confirmation. FWIW, I tried the idea for a few words and got nothing. I did try "treasure" spelled backwards and noticed a hit for "what" starting at the keyphrase at position 16, deriving from the "erus" part. Might be something.
I'll be honest, I never would have gotten the correct order of the svrwy deal without knowing Jenny's favorite number was 34. And I never would have known that unless I read these forums. In fact, I'm re-reading the book again and still not seeing how we were supposed to see the 34. Was this something in the book? Was this common knowledge about Jenny that we were supposed to know going into this? Because, if so, I'm not too confident that I'll be figuring out this first word fifth word seen hidden.

Hi Brydena: whether 34 is a favorite # of Jenny's or not, 34 is directly related to ordinary 4x4 magic squares because it is the average result of adding four different numbers out of the range 1-16. (Sum of numbers from 1-16 divided by 4 is 34.)
