Kelsey I think calling that scene "simply backed into a corner by an intoxicated young man" negates the extreme wrongness of the man's unwanted advances on Jena. However, it is written in a way that will go over younger readers heads, but will clearly let older readers know what is an inappropriate way of being touched. I think this book is fantastic for all audiences and that the scene in question is brilliant at conveying just how inappropriate the young man's actions are, regardless of his level of intoxication. I wish that Jena would have been a lot more upset about it, but the book stays true to the time period where she basically doesn't have any avenue for recourse beyond getting away from him in the moment.
Sarah No, it's a fairly mild book and was written for younger audiences. There is, however, a scene in which the main character is, in plain terms, sexually harassed.

It's not graphic at all. Jena is simply backed into a corner by an intoxicated young man. If I can remember correctly, there is some forced kissing and unwanted advances.

Nothing the strong minded Jena can't handle though!
