Top 25: No
Convince us to read the book: The story is absolutely amazing. The author creates a suspenseful story in which he keeps you guessing the motives of the characters until the very end. The idea of superpowers driving everyone who has them to be corrupt is incredibly original and interesting.
Memorable or Forgettable: The author has great character development. The ideas and thoughts of the characters are very realistic. The characters and story are so realistic you forget you’re reading a book. The sensory details and descriptions of the characters make the book memorable and enjoyable to read.
Cover: I think the cover is a bit ironic. It consists of flames and a fiery skyline.  Whereas the book takes place in a paradise surrounded by water. The cover reflects a couple major scenes from the book, but I would have rather seen the city on the cover since it seems very eye appealing.
Age Range: 12 through 17
Quality: 4Q Better than most
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
