Galley: No
Top 25: No
Convince us to read the book: The characters are defined very well in this story and the plot moves along very smoothly. Some of the characters are a bit overused and are a little stereotypical. 
Memorable or Forgettable: This book was memorable for me because it dealt with real life problems like OCD, mental illness, depression, etc., and it’s written very well. I felt like I could relate to the different people in the story.
Cover: The cover is very simple and it does relate to the book, but not until about halfway through the story. I think the designer needs to choose a different color than pink for the title, as it seems very feminine and might make male readers shy away from it.
Age Range: 12 through 17
Quality: 4Q - Better than most
Popularity: 3P - Some teen appeal
Additional Comments: The plot is a little all over the place at the beginning and I had to read it over again after I had finished the book for it to make sense. However, this is a book that is not a waste of time to read.
