Takes Advantage of Young Readers
Naylor's frequent references to sex and "spouse swapping" are blatant sensational attempts to hook a larger following among her young adolescent audience. I thought it ironic that she attempts to "teach" a lesson on the use of bias/manipulation in commercial persuasive writing techniques, when she engages the similar ploys in her own plot. Books geared to this audience have a responsibility to not take advantage of their readers in this way. The book would have been much better without the writer's desperate provocative hooks.
