Martine asked:

I am un-inclined to allow my teen to read this book. I am not the only parent that has come to that conclusion, either. Am I over reacting?

Serena If it's hard for your teen to read or they aren't a reader normally, most likely you should encourage them to read books that you approve of - or discuss why you don't like them reading certain books - or read a book with them. Keep in mind that tastes in genre often do not run in the family and likes and dislikes are personal.
