This book is no different from some of the books I read in middle school. Reading them did not make me change my behavior but it did educate me to some of the behaviors of people living in this world. The goal of our schools is to provide an education. Sheltering our children from the realities of life is like feeding them baby food when they're in their teens. They're not going to grow and mature.
