Where "The Baby and Fly Pie" was overly scary and too heavy for a teenager, "Way Down Deep" is perfect for a young adult.
The themes are similar: orphans and who can take care of them, who will be a good parent vs. who won't. But this book is full of hope and has some really sweet parts. "The Baby and Fly Pie" really didn't have any hope at all.
