Convince us to read the book: I felt that Laybourne was tired after writing the 2 other books and was slightly out of ideas. But if you could get over the only okay plot, it was written really well just like her other books. I felt that Dean was a bit unrealistic in this book. His girlfriend is pregnant but he acts like a 30 year old father around her even though he isn't even the father of the baby. I also felt the dialogue downgraded just a bit from the other books.
Memorable or Forgettable: I thought that the over all plot was very original and well done. But I thought that the drama between Dean and the baby's Dad was just uninteresting to read.
Cover: I love the cover. It is very dark and realistic.
Age Range: 12 through 17
