Not for 13 Year Olds

Although from the outside this book seems like it would be enjoyable, the book itself is filled with too much swearing as well as sexual references. The things which are unsuitable for younger teens are: Strong language; a young man sits at a computer and talks about how one of his co-workers has been looking up gay porn, and a young man talks about how another man says on a website that he is "uncut", and the young man latter says that he as well. Oddly as it is this book is about a 17 year old getting ready for college, so add all of those together and I wonder why CSM says this book is okay for 13 year-olds?
