Age recommendation?

To answer questions about The Divers' Game, please sign up.
Katherine Kingma I would give this book to a precocious thirteen year old, but I am lenient about this sort of thing.

Reasoning: No sexual abuse, no heavy use of profanity, but the book features some physical abuse. The descriptions of physical abuse aren't grisly, but they are emotionally wrenching. **SPOILER** The last chapter is a suicide note from a wife to her husband, in which she expresses her deep regret for murdering one of the society's second-class citizens. She discusses some of the details of the murder. **END OF SPOILER**

The gravity of the content is to be expected, given the seriousness of the book's subject: how one group of people can go about dehumanizing and torturing another group of people without feeling empathy or guilt.
