Many Challenging Subjects Including Sexuality Topics

I strongly agree with the rating 14 and up. In addition to the subjects mentioned in the summary, there are many topics about sexuality addressed in this book. In fact, I'm surprised there's only one circle in the Sex category. Homosexuality, promiscuity, intercourse, and prostitution are all part of the story. This is a book to discuss at length with your child. If you're looking for a way to open a dialogue about a plethora of challenging subjects, this book will do that. It's a very engaging story and the characters are vibrant.
