Very Good Highly Recommend For Age 12+

Hi so I read this book I think its really good it does have some mature content so I would recommend it for ages 11 and up overall it was so good but parents be aware that there is very mild romance but there is some language: Jesus, Oh My God, ETC, so no bad bad words just letting you know all though at the top it says there's no language there is I have run into problems like that before I hope you will like the book it's very good I highly recommend it also containing the romance it is one kiss, and very little romantic gestures hugging holding hands, etc,
