Chill, out, parents. Jeeeesh.
I'm fifteen years old, and I thought it was a good book. Come on parents, its not like your fifteen year old daughter, or thirteen or fourteen, doesn't know what pot, sex, and getting drunk means. They know a lot more than you think they know, and this isn't some book straight out of hell trying to corrupt your child.
OK I adored this book I completely agree with Katherine about the virginity issue.At thirteen I was most certainly not a virgin but I was popular and a perfectionist and no one knew and it never came back to bite me or whatever.But I would be a heck of a lot happier if I had waited for a WAY nicer guy.And theres a phobia about it.Dude read the book it rocks.
This book is a very fun read. It is fine for teenagers who are probably already experiencing the same things that Carrie does in high school at a younger age than her. Parents should keep younger readers away from this book, but older kids should be fine, even with all the drinking and smoking. And it's a really good book.

Hmm it was wonderful, i read it 2ce in one day!!!
Anyway... This book is really not 4 kids. To much smoke and drug use. But thats really the only issue. People have sex( And watch porn), but reading about it in a book is not the best way to find out about what it is and how to do it. Carrie and the other teens rebel alot, which could influence younger kids. But otherwise i feel in love with this book. And i think if younger kids read about Homosexuality, they might experement with that. Which can be a good thing or a bad thing.
A great girly coming of age book. Carrie is very different from the tv show and movies; Sex&The City. A great beach read for any girl looking for a book about a girl figuring out what she wants to do in life
PARENTS, SEX ISNT ANYTHING A TEN OR ELEVEN YR OLD DOESNT KNOW ABOUT.AND AT 13, IM NOT A VIRGIN. BOOKS LIKE THESE ARE A HUGE INFLUENCE ON KIDS AND TEENS. THEY REALLY HELP TELL THEM THAT SEX ISNT BAD, BUT IT ISNT SAFE AND IT HAS CONSEQUENCES. GREAT BOOK!

Great Book but inappropriate on some levels
I read this when I was about 10 years old but at the time I didn't know what most things they were talking about were. I came to realize that the book was not appropriate for my age so I stopped. A few weeks ago I reread it and it is not the book you should give to your child if they don't know about the sexual terms. It explains bad teenage behavior but also shows you that the decisions that they make are not okay. Over all I don't think kids under 13 should be reading this because of the language and actions of the character's.
