Caleb asked:

Is this book appropriate for a 12 year old? Blood and gore are no problem. Thank you.

Michelle Marino Yes, this is fine for a twelve-year-old. There is no sexual content. Although there are cursing and scenes of torture. I did not think it was too graphic. Since the main characters are children, I think a twelve-year-old would enjoy this if they are ok with the aforementioned topics.
