    "Names Will Never hurt Me"

    Names Will Never Hurt Me, is a book written in several points of views of 4 different teens. Thought their lives seemed to be totally separate from each other,e they were all brought together by a single event in the most unexpected way.
    I can relate to the characters in this book especially Teasia because I'm a teen around her age and I have experienced some of the same things that she had such as being left out of activities. This book really expressed what a teenager goes through and I really like it because of that.
    I think teens from 13 to 16 should definitely have a go at this book because I'm sure you could all relate to it even if you're passed the teen age.

    "Not appropriate for young adults"

    This book is definitely not appropriate for any young adult. The language and sexual references are inappropriate. If it was written better it would be appropriate as an adult book. I would not recommend this to anyone, though.
