Inappropriate Romance:Two characters are implied to have s-x (she takes of his shirt, their in his room), a past mistake of having s-x with someone. mention of the largeness of Darla's chest.
Violence: Being in pain, breaking a leg, injuries, yelling/arguments, talk of suicide, abusive father, Cooper's mom is saved by Cooper from some men who were hitting her around.
Other:Mention of drugs, being drunk, lying/hiding something.
What I Thought:I do not think that suicide is in anyway right...but you have to wonder....would it be different in this situation? I don't know...only God does. Though this book did have a few objectionable things the story was sweet and though a bit sad, it had a great message of love.
