Assessment:

Plot: This novel is absorbing and well plotted. The author grabs readers early on and then slowly reveals just enough information to keep them hooked and turning pages.

Prose: While the storyline here is very strong, the writing is less so. The prose suffers from issues relating to word choice, sentence structure, character consistency, and excessive description.

Originality:  With a unique and captivating premise, this work takes readers on an unexpected journey with memorable characters. Readers of all ages will be drawn to Cheater and will want to accompany her on her quest.

Character Development: Cheater and Jaz are distinct and original, although it takes some time to get to know them and learn their histories. Readers will be drawn in by these damaged adolescents who seek answers in a cold, indifferent world.

Blurb: An intriguing plot with memorable characters, this work will captivate readers of all ages from beginning to end.
