Convince us to read the book:  I believe the plot of the book was just okay. It could have used a bit more work. The dialogue didn't fit in with the time period and the development was not well done.
Memorable or Forgettable: The book wasn't really either. But it sorta fit into the steampunk theme which is being done a lot lately.
Cover: The cover was great. But the only thing I have to say is that the cover reminded me of Brave the movie and was similar in the setting and main character.

Popularity: 3P Some teen appeal
