Cathryn Lucy I entirely agree with Ellen's response. I think it's perfectly suited for an engaging class text with critical discussion.
Ellen Curnow Yes. In the senior section. There is some harrowing violence and drug use. I actually think it would make a stunning Year 13 class text.
Amanda Vaughan As a high school English teacher I’m always asking this question. I think yes to the library and would recommend it to mature Y12-13 students for personal reading or Scholarship work, but would be put off teaching as a class text due to all the triggers! Abuse, drugs, gangs etc
