Convince us to read the book: The character development was not very strong, mostly because the main character was not portrayed well. The plot appeared to be very predictable like all end of the world stories. However the flashbacks were a nice way to give the reader more information on the main character.
Memorable or Forgettable: Personally I didn't like this book I thought it over dramatic so much so that it was not relateable. There are many movies and books are about the end of the world and this book didn't stand out for any others.
Cover: The cover is very artistic. I really like the use of a silhouette; it gives the reader an element of mystery about the main character. The background reflects the content of the book:  destruction of society.
Age Range: Under 12 through 13
Quality: 2Q Needs more work
Popularity: 3P Some teen appeal
