the moon and more

Families can talk about the popularity of Sarah Dessen's novels. Why does her material work so well for teens? If you've read Dessen's other books, how does this one compare? What ideas recur in her work? Sex and underage drinking are just part of the scenery in this novel. Do you find this portrayal realistic? Do you think there should have been more discussion of consequences, or do you like Dessen's approach?

A"Girl Power" book

It's a good book if you are looking for a book to give your children the confidence that the don't need a man and what might be the signs that you need to get up of the relationship. but there are quite a few moments that are not for the younger ones. There is some under age drinking, sexually active teens, the subject of getting pregnant before marriage and some strong language. If you have a close enough relationship with your child, you might want to read them this one out loud, so that you can change some of the language or the scenes about sex. but otherwise this is a good book to prove that girls don't need a man to be happy.
