Cool just a little graphic

I am the guardian/parent of a young set of twins who just read this book and I had to give it a go. I am just going to say the storyline was THE BEST THING EVERRRRRR!!!!!! I myself am into scary books like this but this one was just different in a very good way. The discretion though for the murder were a little graphic and the only reason I say 14+ but otherwise very good and even though there was mentions of ummm how do I put this....... “sexual activity” it wasn’t to much and if I am honest was quite frankly brief and not to in details other reason I say14+ but good book middle schoolers 13 could reas this book and be very satisfied but a little disturbed but that’s my bit of this.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 13+

Amazing read:just don’t read alone at night

As a 10th grader, I’m fine with the cursing and the talking about sex and the sex scene, but it is a well written horror book that made me scared to sleep at night alone in my room
