This would be a good book for middle to upper elementary. It teaches them to not judge a book by its cover and to have an open mind in new situations. I could ask the students about a time they thought something was going to turn out bad, but then didn't.
I loved this book it was totally awesome! I couldn't put it down when I was reading! I really do recommend it.
