Convince us to read the book: This was an okay book, I guess. The main character was interesting and well developed. The rest of the characters just seemed there. The book did feel like it was only about her, which it was, but I could have used some other interesting characters as well. The plot, while interesting, was not exactly believable for the situation the main character was in.
Memorable or Forgettable: I'm going to remember how lame the romance was. Seriously, get rid of the love story! At least tone it back a bit! But other than that, this had a good message that most sane people will remember after reading this book.
Cover: While the cover was interesting, it requires serious mental gymnastics to connect it to the book.
Age Range: Under 12 through 15
