I am thinking of offering this book to my students as a lit circle choice for 7th grade. Do you think the content is appropriate?

Melissa Dempsey I teach sixth grade and I think a better choice for the age and a better written book is Healing Water by Joyce Moyer Hostetter. It's YA and an historical fiction novel about Molokai and the leper colony. All my students who read it, enjoy it.
Anya The content, in my opinion, is too much for 7th graders. High School?..maybe. But some content and scenes are too inappropriate for younger aged children.
Jane I really enjoyed the book but I think you have to consider how parents might feel about the content. I think it might be a better choice for high schoolers.
Aurora Shele It's a wonderful book. I think it might have a great impact on 13 year old children.
