I think that this novel was enjoyable because it had quite an interesting plot. But it really had more material for older teens than young. There was much too much drinking and sexual content for those under 13, and maybe even thirteen.

Good,but mature

The worst thing about this book is the language; the sex is one short scene and nothing that terrible or graphic ever happens. This is an emotionally difficult book, so make sure your child is old enough to handle death, depression, and the fact there aren't happy endings sometimes. But a very powerful message about how we treat others and standing up for your beliefs.

Gripping, amazing book, not for kids 13 and under

I found out about this title by Oliver's other (very good) book Delirium. And I am so happy that I found this book. From the first page I could not put it down and I finished it in two days. The only problem is it does have some sexual content including Samantha's boyfriend wanting to "do it" and Samantha's teacher making out with her. This book also has a LOT of drinking in it, the girls constantly get drunk, Sam's best friend is always smoking and there is a major scene where her and another girl get high in the bathroom. There is violence, but it isn't very detailed. For kids 13 and up enjoy one of the best books I have ever read!
