Note
The "NP" or "Non Prose" code is for any book comprising more than half non-standard prose. This includes most plays, songs, recipes, some kinds of poetry and text with non-standard or absent punctuation. Lexile is based on prose analysis, so NP books do not receive a Lexile measure, merely the NP code
