Naomi I would recommend this book to teenagers, preferably 14+. There is some swearing and touchy topics and sexual scenes/references, and some content that some readers may find inappropriate or disturbing. But it should be okay for the average teenager. I wouldn't give it to a child or a preteen because it would be a bit heavy for them, but it's a great read for teenagers, and it's got a great message that I think teens would like to read about.
Taylor I think children 10 and up should read this book. It has an overall great meaning to it although you might want to make sure your mature enough because there a few harsh words.
