  1. Do you feel that this book is more of a teen book? I have trouble figuring out its' audience.

  2. I think middle school to early high school kids would be the target audience. I've noticed that many books seem to span several age ranges. I could have put it in tweens, instead of fiction (9-12), I suppose.
