DD has to read a novel written by Zora Neale Hurston. I saw the movie and remember liking it. I'm wondering if this book as cussing and sex in it. Also are there any other books by this author that is good and appropriate for a 16 year old to read?

Thanks ladies.


UPDATE

Hello ladies, I finally finished the book today. I enjoyed it. I'm waiting for my daughter to finish reading her book so we can discuss it.The dialogue took some getting used to. But it wasn't that bad being I was born and raised in Charleston South Carolina.  :>) I'm trying to decide if I should allow her to watch the movie.

What did you think of the movie?

Its been yrs.. but I don't remember a sex scene. it was a difficult read for me bc she spelled the words how the deep south dialect pronounces it.. the book ends differently too.

I think it's fit for a teen to read. We had to read it in high school as well. I was her age when I read it and saw the movie.
