Personally, I love books but not usually olden times books such as this but i like books such as Ivanhoe, Swiss Family Robinson, Sherlock Holmes, Nancy Drew, Oliver Twist, and The Hobbit. those are books like this that i don't usually pick off my shelf but I do sometimes.
Books I usually read are like The Hunger Games trilogy, Percy Jackson, Life of Pi, those kind of really action books.
Anyhow, back to the book.
Violence: The only scene is where the sister slaps people, and Miss Havisham dies from a very graphic fire scene.
Sex: none at all whatsoever.
Overall I LOVED this book, It is a must read for pre-teens and teens plus throw in a few older adults!
