controversial topics but parents beware

Overall the book has several controversial topics (drugs, alcohol, homosexuality, sex, teenage pregnancy), however, for it to be noted as "non graphic" is incorrect. There are several instances where as a parent I was appalled that my 13 year old was "mandated" to read this book. After several calls to the school along with other parents, this book is no longer a "mandatory" read.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

This is a compulsively readable story of five teens who meet by chance and then find their lives intersecting in unexpected and surprising ways over the four years of high school. Unlike books in which sex and drugs play a leading role, author Carolyn Mackler has chosen a quieter path for her characters, concentrating instead on the challenges so many teens face: self-discovery, unrequited love, friends who prove not to be friends, family conflicts, and the pressures of applying to college.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
