Convince us to read the book: This book was very, very good.  Every page had you thinking things like, "Oh, no she didn't", and "WOW! that was TOTALLY unexpected!"  Also, the characters really change your opinion about the others characters.
Memorable or Forgettable: What really made it memorable for me was the characters, and how their image changed several times throughout the book. For example, Haven, a very important character, "changes" personality three times during the book.
Cover: I didn't love the cover. I didn't think it really reflected the cover until I finished the book.
Age Range: 12 through 13
Quality: 4Q Better than most
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
Additional Comments: It is a long book, the print is very small.
