Convince us to read the book:  I could count more errors than I have fingers. The plot was okay, actually pretty good, but other than that anything and everything could use improvement.
Memorable or Forgettable: The characters make or break a book. In this case - break it. The characters are all cardboard cutouts with a name and a face. Nothing more. The only exception to this is the main character, Whit. She has real fears, but you need more than one character to have some pizzazz to them. In the end, no matter how good the plot was, the characters ruined it for me and made it really hard to remember the book.
Cover: The cover has a great color scheme and all, but it really didn't make want to pick it up.
