Convince us to read the book: The stylistic element that was strong is definitely the character development, because it shows how much stronger and independent as the book goes on.
Memorable or Forgettable: The qualities of the book that make it memorable for me are the way the author writes it, and how it makes it seem like anyone could connect with the characters.
Cover: The cover did tempt me to pick up the book and it did also reflect the contents.
