Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

(2) Sea Level

We've got simple language, to the point style, and a really direct plot. There's nothing tough about reading this one. That comes later when you try to figure out what it all means.
