Charmed by Carrie Mac - - Advisable

Mac, Carrie Charmed, 124 pgs. Orca Book Publishers; 2004. $9.95 Language: PG13 (11 Swears, 1 F); Mature Content: PG13; Violence: PG13.  

Izzy’s mom’s work has taken her out of town for 6 months, and mom’s boyfriend “Rob the Slob” manages to get Izzy kicked out of the house.  With the pressures of school, friends and the problems at home, Izzy is “rescued” by Cody Dillon, a bad boy drop-out who shows her just the attention she’s craving.  But getting involved with Dillon soon proves to be much worse than she ever imagined. 

This is part of the Orca Soundings series, high interest easy reads for high school students.  Drug use and deals, sex, prostitution, underage smoking and drinking . . . makes this one too mature for middle school.  HS ADVISABLE Lisa Librarian
