Top 25: No
Convince us to read the book: The main character Stella and her best friend Jeanie went missing when they were 7, only Stella came back. The plot develops amazingly throughout the story and there's some serious character development as well.
Memorable or Forgettable: The plot twists are what's gonna make this book memorable for me. It wasn't the most interesting book I've ever read and some of the book just seems like filler for between the plot twists but those twists make it worthwhile. 
Cover: The cover has this eerie air to it. While I like the black and white theme to it, the picture itself doesn't really make sense. Maybe use a small child to represent Jeanie's and Stella's youth and how it was taken away from them both. Keep the title how it is though, that looks cool.
Age Range: 14 through 15
Quality: 3Q - Readable
