This was a novel written for the YA audience but with several F*** words I would not recommend it for YAI am not oblivious to the situation in schools and with profanity among the youth.However, if "adults" feel it is necessary to encourage profanity by including it inYoung Adult books, how will we ever raise the morality and intelligence of therising generation? There are so many avenues of vocabulary in the English language thatcan artfully enthrall, arouse feelings and express emotions without using degradinglanguage and going into explicit sexual detail. Supposedly, the government leadersare trying to create a more educated generation. Also, many are concerned about teen pregnancy.If books aimed at the YA are full of profanity and sexually arousing themes, how will the degradingsituation of our society ever improve?The story was quite cute and well-written though. It was about a girl with no siblings, an ex-friendwho had maliciously turned n her and ruined her reputation, and who had recently lost her motheras well. Her new favorite pastime was going to other people's funerals. It gave her peace listeningto all the pleasant things people remembered of those who had passed on. The next to the last funeral she attended explode into a new and unexpected situation. hat leads to chaos and soon her normally dull life is no longer dull. It did have a slightly weak ending.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
