For a much more mature audience than “Holes”

Thankfully I am reading this out loud to my kids.... they are 7 and 9 and were huge fans of “Holes.” Being that this is the sequel, of course it’s going to appeal to its fan base. The new scene is teen angst. Unfortunately, I am having to filter a TON of very mature content as I read. Drugs, ticket scalping, marital infidelity, mild sexuality (a teen pop star has some racy lyrics and talks about still being a virgin, as well as a few other euphemisms), and some foul language. Had I done my research, I never would have started this book as it’s totally inappropriate. Reader beware.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

In the end i do not think there is enough finality...I hate not knowing what the future holds for the characters. And for people who rate it aganst Holes that is ridiculous....It's a different book about a different person that should be treated as such
