Did the plot pull you in or did you feel you had to force yourself to read the book? Every page was so eventful, you didn't have a chance to stop and think about deconstructing so obviously, the book pulled this reader in.
How realistic was the characterization? Anyone who knows a teenager will know that the characterization was perfect. The way each character interacts and thinks, this author either has experience dealing with teenagers or she has done some very extensive research.
Why do you think the author wrote this book? By the the notes at the end of the book, I'm am guessing this author has either had experience with this issue or is trying to send a message to teenagers and parents. Ultimately, the question is WHAT IF my teenager ends up like this?
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
