Convince us to read the book: I didn't like this book. It read less like a novel and more like an informational text. The situation the characters are placed in makes no sense. Cameron, who everyone calls smart, is actually extremely stupid. And the "extremely paranoid" mother would have been locked up a looooong time ago. Assuming that didn't happen, she would have locked her kid up fairly quickly in the book. All in all, it makes no sense.
Memorable or Forgettable: It's forgettable. It was written in a way that takes your time, but not your mind.
Cover: The cover is boring and forgettable. I'd say it reflects the contents.
Age Range: 12 through 13
Quality: 2Q - Needs more work
Popularity: 3P - Some teen appeal
