This is not a book for children. Our teacher is having us read this book right now in class. It is embarrassing because It has stuff about sex. But I do like that she does not make us talk about that stuff in class. She let's us write in our reading journals anything that we don't want to share. So that is cool. But then the girls in class want to talk about all that stuff. This book is full of weird crazy stuff!
