Ok,very rarely do I every put down a book and not finish it. I was half way through and just couldn't take it anymore. One word, MAJOR DRAMA. Ok that was two.So like I said major drama. Not that I don't like drama I do, but man, I felt like I was stuck in bad novella and that nothing was ever going to end. It was one thing after another. Turn and turn! I just wanted to get some kind of peace for the poor characters in this book!!They were sex, drinking, and lots of cursing. Major cursing. I do read book that curse here and there but there was a curse word in every other word. It was getting ridiculous!I understand that this book is for use in school and libraries only. But seriously this is too much for a young reader to read. And only a reader like age 18+ would be find, but not anything younger. I was appalled at the things in this book.
