Did we miss something on diversity?

Community Reviews

age 18+

Content for the mature, not a children's book

Characters portrayed for the mature. Cconversations about how Mrs. Zender would always play a "boy or a bitch" and how her fans "all wanted to sleep with me", up the ante right there. Additionally, "I am a homosexual, "I am a homosexual too." I'm concerned Common Sense didn't review this book.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
