DaNae Kathy, I just picked this up for my school which ends at 6th grade. In your opinion does it make the cut content wise? I figure I can get away with minimal PG-13 words, Hunger Games level of violence, and non-descriptive talk of sex, but the characters shouldn't themselves be active.

I really think this is more late 7th grade though it is extremely popular among my 6th graders. There is slightly higher level of violence but no kids killing kids. And Tris and Four talk about one day having sex but neither feel ready now although there is heavy petting. I would think that would escalate in book 2 since they are now emotionally connected...
