I haven't read it, but from what I heard, I would not let my child read it.

At 16, I think the better question is could you stop her if she truly wanted to read the book?  If it was me, I would read it myself so that I could talk to her about it, but I wouldn't stop her from reading if it she wanted too.

Hell no, I would not want my 19 or 22 yo to read it.

Ok... I will admit my daughter read it. She started it and I didn't know. I found it in her room and it lead to a very good conversation. In the end she felt it was poorly written and she had issue with the way the young wan in the book behaved.

In the end it wasnitbad for my daughter but I wouldn't say that for all.

 I think I'd have to read it first to make that determination.

I myself read it and have to agree with sahlady's daughter in that is was very poorly written.  The author was in bad need of a Thesaurus.  It's not a book that would typically appeal to my two teen daughters because it's not the type of book that interests them.
