We bought this from our search labeled for children 0-4 years. It definately was for a mature, upper elementary to middle school age. It is a very sad story about a girl who is teased, unloved and in a dysfunctional family who in the end gets turned over to child welfare. To deal with her life, the little girl uses her imagination with the a doll house and bear dolls to act out a happy life. It is really heavy with issues to explain and discuss. For an adolecent, it is a good story.
