Challenged for: "sexism, sexually explicit, unsuited to age group."
As far as I can tell, people who challenge books think "sexually explicit" means "the author admits sex exists and that teenagers sometimes think (very vaguely) about having it."
Good for: People who like young adult romance. I have a number of friends who would really like this book, I think! It's very cute and quite powerful for such a short thing. I wasn't actually expecting to like this at all, as I usually find books-in-verse to be kitschy, but this little story really won me over.
