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)

Don't be fooled – there's a lot going on here. Humans are complicated, and this book is all about how complicated they can be. Two stories (and maybe even more) weave together here in a way that sometimes boggles our minds. Hang on for the ride, though, and you won't be sorry. We recommend reading this book multiple times. Each time you read it, you will learn new things about Sal. It's like a choose-your-own-adventure book, because there are so many different stories to attract your attention.
