I'm not sure how I feel about this one. I gave it a 3 out of 5 stars on goodreads.com. It's aimed for young adult. I would definitely say middle school and up. It is the author's debut book and the inclusion of olf vintage photographs to help tell the story was different. I liked it ok, but it wasn't one that I just couldn't wait to get back to reading.
