WARNING. THIS BOOK MAY CONTAIN THE FOLLOWING: BLOOD, GUTS, GORE, BRAINS, OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE, VIOLENCE, GRAPHIC HEALTH CLASS SCENES AND DIRTY HUMOR. NOT INTENDED FOR HEART PATIENTS, SQUEAMISH PEOPLESES, THE ELDERLY, OR THE YOUNGERLY (I know it's not a real word. Deal with it.) Sad and (see above) but excellent.
