It's been a long time since I read this book - is it appropriate for a 13 year old? Thanks

Cara Segger For the right 13-year-old, it could be a life-saving read. Literally. But for most 13-year-olds who still have their innocence, let them keep it.
Diana Lester Depends on the 13-year-old, but I would say "no"... maybe for an older teen in a supervised context (book club, school class). There are a lot of adult sexual and criminal activities that the protagonist normalizes (that are NOT normal).
