This book appears to be written for children and indeed provides excellent supportive care for this age group. What surprised me is how appropriate it is for teens and adults, as well. Admittedly, it does say on the front cover that it is for all ages, but I was pleasantly surprised how apropos it is for the older age groups. Thank you for such a well written and wonderful story.
