really liked it

I read this book a few times the summer between the 6th and 7th grades.
Candy taught me to refer to grown-up lady-parts as honey pots and spice boxes.
I wish I had known at the time that this was supposed to be satire.

Jamie Hahah oh my god! You read this in 7th grade?? It took me by storm when I read it for the first time at 21; I wonder how your opinion of it will change if you read it again today.

Nikki I think it should serve as a warning to parents: if your child is a bookworm, hide the sexy stuff! I haven't reread it in years, but I'm guessing I would appreciate the humor instead of being overwhelmed by all of the wild and wacky sex.
