Read from August 21 to 22, 2011, read count: 1

RATED R for sexual content and violence.

Published by Simon Pulse, I suspect this was chosen because it would get young adult readers' attention. Yes, it does.

Can I put this book in the hands of one of my students without a warning about some of its content? No.

Do I realize some of my students would gobble this up? Yes.

Once I got past the "soft porn" descriptions of sexual encounters, there was a plot of teen lovers in way over their heads and out of control....Lots of angst...but real life terrible, horrible, no good, very bad things were going on...not only in their world, but in their greater community, with greed, graft and corruption.

What a mess.

I read the whole thing.

A tragedy, for sure.
