Hott Review:

This review is a difficult one to write. I REALLY enjoyed most of the book. The writing is excellent and I loved the story my problem is that while that is perfect for audiences of all ages there is language and adult content that is absolutely inappropriate. I do realize that what is written is nothing more than many teens hear or are exposed to in their schools, however, that doesn’t make it something they should all read.

My advice is that if you and your child is not bothered by this – absolutely grab Josh’s books! He’s an amazing writer.
However, if you’re on the fence get one of his books and make your own decision.
As for me – my children won’t be reading this.
