Sweet and empowering but for more mature readers
I’ll start this by saying that I let my 11 year old daughter read this. However, I would rate this 14+ because I think that a reader should be as mature as the average 14 year old in order to read this. If you aren’t sure what I mean by that— this book contains some mild violence and a little bit of swearing (about as much as the average YA novel), and sex (6/10 in terms of descriptiveness, but only briefly).
If that’s okay with you, then I would recommend this book. It’s heartwarming at times, and creatively written, and it has important themes in it. I would say that in my opinion it’s written very well.
Overall— good book, but keep in mind that it’s mature.
