Convince us to read the book: This book is a quick, silly read that will be a great one-off when you want a trashy book (in the same way someone enjoys Teen Wolf or the 60s Batman live-action show).  Also, that epilogue ending is a load of baloney that was made to infuriate and is shameless marketing and should be fixed; even when an author continues a plot to a sequel through a cliff hanger, such a poorly contrived cut off is absurd and should not have made it through the editing process.
Memorable or Forgettable: This book is memorable because it makes great leaps and wears on the suspension of disbelief too much.
Cover: The cover would be decent if it actually matched the book's contents, which it did not; the cover shows someone who is so far from the picture painted of the main character in the book it is barely laughable.
Age Range: Under 12 through 15
Quality:  2Q Needs more work
Popularity: 2P Only for special interest
Annotation:  Indigo's life is great, except for her mother, whose witchcraft loving eccentricities have brought Indigo nothing but mockery. Then this Bible her mother is extraordinarily protective of vanishes, and a handsome young man named Bishop appears asking Indigo to help him locate the Bible  to protect it from a group of sorcerers, because Bishop claims she is a witch charged with its protection.
