This book was great and I loved it so much. Most of the people say it’s for kids over the age of 13 but I think it’s fine for 11+ years old. It does have a little swearing and some 18+ scenes but I think it’s fine.

This is my new favorite series, and this book is the best of the three. There is an enemies to lovers romance and a great cliffhanger that had me running for the third book. 100% recommend!
