A clean book to me is one that's free from sex, drugs, extreme violence, and foul language. In several listings on Goodreads, I have labeled my book as clean. But because everyone's definition of content varies, I will break it down below (a spoiler is at the bottom ).

Dear friends,

While achieving a goal is a big accomplishment at any level or any age, it is even sweeter, when within eight months of publication, the first work of a self-published author is chosen to be adapted into a motion picture.
