Say What?

So my sister sent me a draft of her newest book. Did I tell you she is a writer? She is! And she actually writes books! Not only does she start them, she also finishes them. They get published and people even buy them…. Sometimes she even writes them in code!! Check this out! When I opened the file, this is what it said:

And I’m like…. huh??? Ok, Gracie, I’m pretty intelligent, but hey, I’m not THAT smart! Well, whenever I am confronted with a problem, I turn to the Church of Google. Through which I was directed to a program that might possibly decipher it. I have downloaded said program twice now, and both times my internet connection has gone away before the download was complete.

So, I’m wondering… is this some sort of Alien Cypher? Did you CHANNEL this book from Andromeda? or Sirius? or… the Pleides? Is there an alien conspiracy working to ensure that this book is never read by simple humans like me?
