Read from May 12 to 13, 2012

In the first chapter or two it mentions a girl having her period, which is something I could have dealt with as a book for my 7-year-old. But then the unsupervised middle school party with weed sort of pushed it into the "not yet" area.

I'm not sure I'll want her reading it at 9 either, but when she is 9 at least now I know what my issue was :-)

Other than that it's a pretty stereotypical family breaking up, kid going through that, with the fun sort of "secret window" part thrown in. I loved Betty Ren Wright as a kid and look forward to sharing her with Sam but not yet :-)
