Surreally challenging

On an inappropriate/appropriate content scale, Wakefield is certainly fine for those above 12, however in my opinion in order to fully comprehend the pure genius and viscerality behind Swicord's masterpiece it would most likely serve your child (now teenager) best to wait just a few years.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
