I read this for the second (or third) time for my student book club. Looking at it through their eyes, I can see how it would be confusing. This is an amazing book for a book study because it is so full of symbolism and metaphor, but that is the same reason that it might be inaccessible for the average teen reader. I am excited to see how much of the deeper meaning my students actually got, having read it on their own without a teacher to explain as they went (the way that I had it for my first reading.)
