Top 25: No
Convince us to read the book: I really liked the character development of someone other than the main character. Noah's journey down the path of coming to terms with the fact that religion is religion and knowing when enough is enough. 
Memorable or Forgettable: Apart from the hidden craziness that came with the "next life" process I really liked the way Noah's culture lived off the land and everyone helps out and lives together. It's a healthy lifestyle and I personally would like to try that sometime. 
Cover: I'm not super sure how the cover fits in with the story. It's probably a metaphor for how Scarlett feels caged by something bigger than she thinks. But it works and it's eye catching so keep it. 
Age Range: 14 through 15
