This is a well-written book, but it's too dark for for upper-elementary or lower-middle readers. Reviews typically compare to To Kill a Mockingbird. Even that book is more of a high school read.

I wanted to love this book. The story in and of itself has great meaning, is beautifully written, and is performed well- however I started to get frustrated with the practicality of the plot. I kept being reminded that the main character is only 11- which becomes increasingly harder to believe with all that unfolds. I suppose anything is possible, but this fact kept making me question the greater meaning of the book and had me frustrated with the scenarios. It seems almost too far fetched and extreme for what it's trying to teach, which disappointed me.
