Will the responsible adult in this novel please stand up. Don't hold your breath. There is no one!!! I feel sorry for the children who are attempting to grow up amid this chaos. The story line is inconsistent. The book seems to be an excuse to write about sex. Terrible!! Awful waste of time!! Kristi & Abby Tabby

The book is engagingly written and captures human situations with realism.
However, as an atheist, I was uncomfortable with the lengthy spiritual content, and I suspect that a fundamentalist would be uncomfortable with the gay and sexual content.
