You're missing a question mark so it was confusing. Look at the comments and quote spouts (show thread) for people's replies. I'm the asker (discussion lead) so don't typically answer.

? Are you answering or asking or editing my spout? The definition of apply is "be applicable or relevant." If it's not perfect sentence structure that's not the point here.

You can take the librarian out of academia, but you can't take academia out of the librarian.

I'd have to do more research to see the exact grades that were targeted, but I think it's fine for middle school as well as high school. Kids are not naive and it's best to talk about difficult subjects before high school, especially for girls so they know how to protect themselves.

This is the first book we've read where I was hard pressed to find anything that could be considered "explicit" (or related to CRT, which is used to cast a wide net). Because it alludes to rape and talks about domestic violence, it's been challenged in K-12 for its "sensitive subject matter."

I really related to the search for home. In my 30s I was bound and determined to buy a house and forced the issue with the boyfriend. It was a wise purchase.

Other things - it might be a good way to get more suggestions for future books to read. My call for suggestions haven't been getting much response. And we could rotate hosting of the informal pods too. Again, I'll keep you posted.
