This book has lots of descriptions of the teen characters experiencing lust and sexual desires. These are the parts that I thought the book could have done without. There are ways to write about physical attractions without being so explicit. I found this a negative part of the book and I thought that it interfered too much with the actual story.
I would not recommend this book to any young adult because of the many references to lust and sexual desires. Other than this, I liked the rest of the book. At the end of each chapter, there was an exciting or interesting moment. Thus, it was written in a way that makes the reader want to turn the page and keep reading.
