Keep in mind this is a book specifically meant for minor kids. Let's read a couple of excerpts, shall we? "Mr. Dondier sat down on the piano bench, his face red and sweating and his eyes strange and staring, as he raised her legs onto his shoulders and plunged his face between her l*gs. He moaned and his shoulders jerked violently as he burrowed between her th*ghs." (The "her" here is a girl his daughter's age!) "I was hot with desire for her body. I wanted to caress her, to gorge myself on her.... As our eyes met, my body quivered with delight. I had never known such piercing happiness, such an explosive moment of sweetness." (This boy is referring to his aunt!) This piece of garbage is pushed by the American Library Association and available in the CHILDREN's area of most Public Libraries! Shame on librarians! (If you censor this review I will ask Bibliocommons for redress.)
