Convince us to read the book:  Element wise, this was an okay book. The characters were actual people. They had conversations that could actually happen. They showed true emotions. The plot made sense. It was paced well. It was just fast enough to keep things going. It was still slow enough to make sense.
Memorable or Forgettable: The most memorable thing in this book was its messages. That is a very bad thing, as its messages send the wrong picture to children. It sends "classic girls are too weak" stereotypes. So, yes the book is memorable. No, not in a good way.
Cover: I liked the cover. It was very Sci-Fi ish. It was not what I expected from the cover, but the cover still matched.
Age Range: 12 through 17
Quality: 4Q Better than most
