Potlamp asked:

Hello All, Is this quote actually in the book: "I JUST GAVE A THIRTY-FIVE-YEAR-OLD EX-CON A BLOW JOB. DO I GET PAID EXTRA?" I'm a HS librarian, and we have many edgy YA and adult titles in our library. However, I want to make sure that if we purchase this book (which is listed as grade 8 and up by SLJ), it has enough literary merit for me to defend the purchase.

paris That quote is in the book (as sarcasm) and that's about as crude as the story gets. It does contain mature topics but grade 8 and up seems about right. It definitely has enough literary merit,.
