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

Tangerine is written as if it were a middle school student's journal. It's chock-full of dialogue and sports action, so the language is not too tricky. The symbolism and themes in the novel, however, take it to the next level of difficulty, but don't sweat it: we're here to help you figure that stuff out. And the issues that Tangerine deals with are such important ones, that it really should be on everyone's reading list.
