Easy: How Far is Too Far?

Easy: How Far is Too Far? is by Kerry Cohen Hoffman. Jessica is fourteen; her parents just went through an ugly divorce and her dad is getting married to a much younger woman. She feels worthless and wants attention and is willing to do anything to get it. With the "right" clothes and attitude she can get all the male attention she wants. But is this kind of attention the "right" kind? Is the reputation she gets deserved and what can she do to make a change? A poignant tale of a lost teen making very bad choices and facing the consequences of those choices while trying to to deal with her parents' divorce and its aftermath. This book is excellent but does contain mature thematic content and profanity.

Ratings: 10th grade - 9 out of 10 - P (Profanity) - AC (mature thematic content) - S (non graphic sexual content).
