Where Things Come Back Tough-o-Meter

(5) Tree Line

It's not that the language in Where Things Come Back is particularly difficult to read; after all, this is a book in which our narrator is your typical seventeen-year-old boy from a small town. He speaks plainly, curses, and talks about hot girls a lot. But the themes make it more challenging—we're dealing with heavy hitters like growing up, death, and even the existence (or non-existence) of a higher power. That's all deep stuff to take in, which means there's ample food for thought.
