Diana asked the 4 Moms a great question on facebook. I don’t have a good answer for her, but I’m hoping somebody does. Can you help?
I have a 15 year old sister who is struggling to find appropriate reading material. I’ve run out of ideas and my mom is struggling because she doesn’t feel like she has adequate time to preview books before my sister gets them. Any suggestions that would be appropriate, specifically avoiding “romance”? Do you have a trustworthy reference that my mom could use to give her the scoop on a new book without having to read the whole thing?
What do you think? Does such a resource exist? It sounds like ScreenIt.com for books instead of movies. We find it useful because rather than just saying that a movie is safe for kids, it gives a very detailed list of all the scenes, topics, and expletives that viewers might find objectionable, even touching on worldviews. This is useful to us because we are far more concerned about sex scenes or implied sexual relationships than we are about rough language or alcohol, for example. I would love to know if such a resource exists for books.
