The Watsons Go to Birmingham—1963

  

by Christopher Paul Curtis

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

Watsons has some lingo some cultural references particular to the 1960s that might have you scratching your head, but it's nothing you can't handle with a little attention to the context clues and some help from Shmoop. No heavy duty climbing equipment needed; you can do this one in your flip flops.
