Happy my son is finding appropriate reads

My 12 year old enjoyed this book very much. So, naturally, I wanted to see what he had been reading. I did not care for the amount of violent action scenes but they were not gruesome or beyond his age. I’m glad he was excited to read and if he enjoys the action scenes then I’m ok with that. There is no explicit sex mentioned anywhere. In fact, I was happy to see a book for teens mentioning consent and respecting the boundaries set. I don’t think my son really noticed any of that but I was happy to see it play out respectfully. The message is really about respecting the planet and if it takes some action-packed scenes to get him into a book then I’m happy. I believe this is appropriate and exciting reading for young adults 11+
