"i was very slow to come by this book, because it just did not seem like my type of book. I finally pick it up, and realize that i can not put it down. This book was incredible. the violence was a little bit rough at times, but it is nothing that an eleven or twelve year old could not handle. There was almost no language, and the romance was extremely mild. over all this book was amazing"
