Top 25: Yes
Convince us to read the book: When I began this book, I was quick to realize I would have to pace myself. I needed to take brief intermissions that would help me make my way through the pages. And this was shocking to me, as I usually love to sweep my way through a book efficiently in order to squeeze out the amazing plot and characters and laughter and suspense so I can go to bed smiling happily. But I didn't go to bed smiling that night. Instead my dad came into my room and saw my face. Needless to say he was concerned: I was sitting in my bed crying.
Cover: The cover didn't really match the book. Yes, the typography was excellent, as was the way the problem of muteness was shown, but the girl just didn't seem right. She doesn't match the time period, and her eyes looked more dangerous than sad or observant.
