A good book is mostly made up of two things - a solid plot and believable characters. While the plot in Storm
is not exactly earth-shattering (albeit, still being pretty good), it's the book's mind-blowing
characterization that makes it shine amongst the rest of the YA books. For a debut novel, this is absolutely brilliant.
If you ever want to know how to write about relatable, flawed and utterly real
characters, take a leaf or two out of Brigid Kemmerer's books (Heh).
