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!

Originality: 5 – I was not expecting this to be very original.  I was thinking Sunset Boulevard, and boy was I wrong!  One of the most original books I’ve read in a while.

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.
