Fun read for tweens, watch for bad examples

Tween loved the book. Good fantasy book, hoping for a sequel. The D-word was used a few times and there is some drinking and smoking, so there aren't great role models in the book. However, the story was fun.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
