good for learning purposes

I read this book when i was 12 and i really enjoyed it. It DOES send positive messages if the reader interpretes it well. Its pretty accurate and is a good story for a young teen to read. Parents need to stop being so over protective because kids need to make mistakes and learn from them. And although my parents don't know it, ive already been exposed to sexual activities and know lots of ppl who arent virgins and i even had a crush on a guy who turned out to be a pot dealer(i know how bad drugs are so i left him alone all together).

no literary value

This book is full of everything we try so hard to keep our students out of!

Not for me and not for middle schoolers

Not for middle schoolers. Very mature themes -- or actually immature themes -- of partying, casual sex, fighting, etc. This is one we won't buy for our middle school library.
