bookshelves: north-america, sort-of-ick, ya

The audience is the most perplexing element of this book which though marketed to YA seems more to tempt that audience with promised (and delivered) violence while also speaking to an adult audience with another voice entirely.

A Clockwork Orange meets Judy Blume with not the most appealing, or writerly, depictions of violence, violation, and threat. Ultimately describes the inability of parents (or anyone) to really know the minds or lives of the generations either side if them.
