Description: SCP-XXX , The words "The Perfect World" written in size 16 times new roman, letters colored Blue, with an simple image of a unnamed fictional flower painted on the green paper cover marked to have been written by a J.D.L, regardless of who holds it stays consistently 560 pages. In other words unremarkable, with a basic and by some staff considered a "cheesy" title. First catching the attention of Agent ████ who came across the book in ██████, Iowa. The Liberian had been planning to sell the book after her late husband ███████, was found dead of a ██████ with the book laying open on the ground, blank. While this discouraged Agent ████, a short skimming of the first chapter was considered enjoyable so he purchased the book at the price of Ten U.S.D (10$).

The special properties of the book were not noticed until later when his daughter ████ read the first few chapters, giving a conflicting story to what the Agent remembered reading of the first chapter, after complaining about a "Creepy feeling" from the book after reaching chapter 3. The Agent after mild confusion decided to look at the book again pointing to his daughter at a opening starting in 'The street lights gave off a haze in the smog lined streets.' While the daughter argued being "absolutely positive" that the story didn't look anything like that before.
On ██/0█/1████, Two (2) days after the time that the argument was said to take place, Agent ████ reported her daughter missing. Detectives were sent in finding no hints from neighbors or her friends about where she had gone.

On ██/0█/1█, Four (4) days later Agent ████ was also reported missing by his wife, while staff was bothered by the missing Agent, it was considered higher priority to remove any classified substances from Agent ████ house.

On ██/0█/1█, it was discovered that several members of the cleanup crew had stolen items from the house, while this normally would be grounds for minor ██████ given the items stolen being relatively useless, yet it was reported after one (1) of the cleanup crew who had decided to steal SCP-XXX had, as a witness reported, after reading to chapter 3 being unable to speak properly, then as his co-worker said "Exploded!" as he stopped replying.

The book was taken and is currently under study. SCP-XXX, study pending
