Addresses mental health issues

This book deals with some heavy themes, but mental illness needs to be discussed. In Sight of Stars handles these issues in a realistic, sensitive, yet ultimately uplifting way. Klee is a relatable teen, with which readers can identify. This book is recommended for grades 10+.

Not appropriate for Young Adults

This authors literature is riddled with very foul language. It is pushed on young adults and sales to High Schools and Jr. High Schools. Subjects including suicide, sex, sensuality should be taken very seriously in our young generation and this book is not the best choice for influencing them positively. This book should not be included in curriculum.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
