I think most 16 year old kids could handle it. There are probably a few who should probably wait until they are 20, though.

I would say mature older teens and adults. I don't think a child or even a young teen would understand most of the book.

This would be good for any high school / middle school student. There are some themes in there younger students would not appreciate. This would be good for a psychology/sociology class so they can see the far-reaching effects of abuse.

Young teenagers. Probably 14 and upwards.
Heart! We will forget him!
You an I, tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done, pray tell me
That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! lest while you're lagging.
I may remember him!

Emily Dickinson
