I have just recently finished using this text in my high school literature classroom. I chose the book for a reluctant readers class. It was very well recieved! The students enjoyed the spagetti western motif and we frequently read ahead of the assignment. However, the book was almost too easy, and I wished I would have ordered a more complex graphic novel. I may use this in the coming weeks with a younger class (7th grade) and I think this will be more successful.
A note: This isn't a completely "clean" novel. There is mild profanity and one semi-nude scene.
