The Discerning Parent's Guide to Books
Monster Love – Carol Topolski, Fig Tree, United Kingdom, 2008
Rating: R (Infrequent very strong coarse language, frequent mild-moderate coarse language; Strong themes of child abuse including neglect and murder; fairly graphic description of deceased child; Sexual references ranging from mild to strong, very explicitly described sex scene in the second of the Brendan and Sherilyn chapters; “Ronald” chapter contains strong sexual references, explicitly described sexual fantasy, masturbation and explicitly described sexual interaction with a young child. This chapter is written in first person voice and is somewhat gratuitously written. A subsequent chapter refers back to the events of this chapter from the perspective of the victim, in a less explicit way.)
