Convince us to read the book:  I really liked this book. The concept was very intriguing and original, so it was a very interesting read. I also really loved the characters. They were all strong and complex, and I loved how they developed throughout the book. Another thing I loved about this book was the fact that it took place in Japan. It was very interesting to read about the culture and how different it is from American culture.
Memorable or Forgettable: In my opinion, the most memorable parts of the book are the fact that it is set in Japan, so the characters' day-to-day lives were very different than here in the US, and the dark, paranormal concept.
Cover: I thought the cover was really interesting, because it is a different style of art than you see on the average book, and it reflects the fact that the book is centered in Japan.

Quality: 4Q Better than most
