Characters: 5 – Wow! The characters in this book were amazing. They felt so real. Evelyn, of course, is great! But even after finishing the book, I don’t know if I like her or not.
Plot: 4 – The plot was basically just Evelyn’s life, but it was so interesting, and I just wanted to find out more!
Writing: 5 – Stellar writing! I loved the way that articles were used in place of a long drawn out explanation. So good!

Predictability: 4 – So many things I didn’t see coming. Some things that I sort of did, but there were enough twists and turns to keep my eyes glued to the pages.
Romance: 5 – A-MAZING! There were so many in this book, but each felt real on some level.
