Amber Thomas I realize this answer is four months later (so the 13 year old has either lost interest or read it already). I would say no. There's nothing inherently bad in it; however, it wouldn't interest a 13 year old. I'm trying to come up with a comparison, so perhaps the show The Office? It's about adults, so adult stuff happens and there's mild adult humor, but it's not super explicit or anything. Hope this helps!
