Title: The Girl from the Well
Author: Rin Chupeco

Pub Date: 08/05/14
Galley: Yes
Top 25: Yes
Convince us to read the book: The character development went really well. You see the change happen before the book describes it. Good dialogue, though occasionally vulgar. Some good sense of sarcasm.
Memorable or Forgettable:  I liked how the main character - Tark - developed. I also loved his relationship and how he coped with certain spirits.
Cover: The cover certainly gives it a sense of eeriness, though I chose it due to seeing the title then reading the short blurb on the back of the book.
Age Range: 14 through 15
Quality: 5Q Hard to imagine a better book
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
Additional CommentsI'm glad the author gave the background story for everyone. It helps the book not be as confusing.
Additional: A good thriller type book. There is good heritage base and plenty of ghosts and demons in for the ride.
