Worst Book EVER!

I cannot understand how anyone could find anything redeeming about this book. How an author could write about an inmature mother encouraging two 13 year olds on how to have sex is beyond my comprehension - and to top it off with the girl getting pregnant - now that is a...
I cannot understand how anyone could find anything redeeming about this book. How an author could write about an inmature mother encouraging two 13 year olds on how to have sex is beyond my comprehension - and to top it off with the girl getting pregnant - now that is a child having a child. Unbelievable.

    Sorry, can't give it zero stars!

    Terrible book. Poorly written, writing style is a weak rip off of Salinger. Characters have little development and you find yourself not caring much what happens one way or another. Dialogue is totally unreal for any decade let alone the early sixties. Weak, almost non existent plot. Situations are unrealistic. For example: We are supposed to actually believe that Wyoming Jr. High kids in 1963 were allowed to chew and spit tobacco in class! And now to the whole teen "relationship" part that everyone is concerned about. To be honest when I found out it was going to be so graphic, I skipped a lot of it. Not of interest to me. Honestly, I skipped quite a lot of this book not just the parts about young teens doing THE THING. It was boring, but I wanted to see how it ended. And the ending was predictably unrealistic and contrived. Good thing this book was a freebie!

    Didn't find it even worth finishing

    I only read about 10% of the book. Found the writing style confusing and the characters off-putting.

    sad

    Every adult in this horrid book should be in jail. While there, they should be forced to go back to school! It is not worth the effort to read. Why did I finish it? I really don't know except to see if the baby was a boy or a girl.
