According to my colleague, it is shorter, with easier vocab. This is why I
can't bear the idea of teaching it.
I think I might go with Sallyo's "Dragonsong" suggestion - I was thinking

thematically similar, so it would work well. ie I can make them write a
comparative essay about pursuing ambitions that your parents don't approve.
