Average Teen Rating: 5.3
I chose this book because I knew that it would generate a lot of good discussion. My teens we mixed on this title too. Some really got into the story, but some felt that it was too bleak for them.
Discussion Questions: I didn't really have to make up my own questions this month. I found some great ones here and here.
