  • Reading Age: 11+
  • Reading Aloud Age: Not a book for reading aloud.

This book is pretty clean. They have young teen 'relationships' and references to drugs and alcohol. Although there is nothing major in this book, there is still some older content, and is not suitable for anyone under eleven.
