Nice story about diversity, a fun read

This is a fun read for older teens. My issue for younger kids is there is much talk about sex and some pretty descriptive scenes surrounding sex and kissing. Language can be strong in spots, and it is completely unneeded. I feel the author missed the mark by adding in what she thinks kids want, which is sex and language, This book would have been absolutely perfect of a younger teen if she had just removed some of that which detracted from the story. Overall, for older teens it is a fun read and lighthearted!
