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.

age 18+

A book for adults.

I am very surprised and disappointed to see this book rated "on" for kids as young as 15. I read it a few years ago and would not recommend it for anyone under 18 years old. It is about a young man and a young woman on their graduation day from university. They "hook-up" that night, and form a strong bond. The plot follows them on that same date for 20+ years as they go through different phases of life as well as relationships with other people. The themes are mature, including sexual promiscuity, alcohol abuse, and poor decision making. There are some unsettling plot twists.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
