This book has many wonderful messages, however I will not be able to give to my students because of the swearing. I love the characters and the love they have for each other and also all the lessons we learn from Jackie.
Language includes gd, effing, crap, sucks. Crap wouldn't be that bad except she uses it constantly. The use of gd is not ok. Would be a great read aloud if you leave out the swearing.
