A MUST READ!

I think that its aboslutely fine for 11 and up! Because my daughter ( Vanessa) Is Kinda of obsessed with vampire books and alot of them were innappropiate but then we found the author ( Richelle Mead ) and we abosolutely fell in love with this book! I know if you let your kids read they will not put it down or you will not put it down. There is this one scene in the book were Adrian ( main character) kisses sydney ( other character ) then she pushes him away honestly ive read alot of books with let me say it briefly ( sex ) but this book is honestly harmless HOPE YOU ENJOY IT!
