Convince us to read the book: The story and plot were great, and there was a lot of character development throughout the book. However, it felt like the characters seemed a bit fake at times because of their dialogue/actions. It also felt like the story just stopped at the end, like it was rolling down a cliff and suddenly fell off. Other than that, I really enjoyed this book because you can relate with the characters and get to know their stories.
Memorable or Forgettable: The emotional experience made this book a worthwhile experience, just because you can relate with the characters in some ways and feel their emotions. But it was also kind of cheesy and the plot was pretty predictable in some places. So I have mixed feelings about this book.
Cover: The cover made me pick up the book in the first place. It does reflect the book, and it made me want to read it.
Age Range: 12 through 15
Quality: 4Q - Better than most
