Hard to rate for me. Writing seemed OK, world building is OK but the main character is fifteen year old girl who is a magical special snowflake, and does not fit in, and must try to figure out who she is. She is also trying to decide which of two sixteen year old boys boys she truly loves....More of a young adult story.
