What reading level is The Fountains of Silence book?
To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:

Sister Hortensia assures Puri that the newly arrived orphan enjoyed a comfortable first night and that the other young boys have welcomed him warmly.
    “I wish there was something we could do for the older children,” says Puri.
    “Whatever do you mean?” demands Sister Hortensia. “We are housing them, feeding them, bathing them, clothing them, and seeing to their education. Most are children of degenerates! But here, they feel a sense of community and will grow into very fine adults.”
...s, most are very happy. But they have no parents.”
    Sister exhales her annoyance. “It is better to have no parents than the wrong parents.”
    Puri thinks on Sister’s statement. She had a hard time sleeping, thinking of the crying boy, abandoned on the sidewalk. Many families have eight or ten children but no way to support them. She thinks of José, the little boy who lost his tooth, and the letter from Sister Hortensia to his family, explaining how gifted and smart he is.

Ruta Sepetys' brilliance cannot be overstated. I've read all of her novels, swearing each time that I'll name my future children after her book characters. She is among the world's best story tellers, fully immersing herself in the history so as to immerse us as well.
I was sad to reach the last page. I felt love, loss, sadness, true joy, empathy, and a deep desire to understand. Eternally grateful to Ms. Sepetys for "doing the work."
May we all learn from our histories and allow it to "flow through us" as opposed to creating barriers. I LOVE YOU RUTA WOOOO!!

This is an incredible book, I read it a little while ago and I loved it so much. It really hooks you in and keeps you wanting to read more. I’ve never read any books from this author, but I’m definitely going to since this book was so beautiful. 10/10 would recommend
