Does anyone know if this book is suitable for a 10 year old to read? Thank you.

Dd has a pre publication proof copy

It's aimed at secondary aged kids & is about a 15 year old girl. I've had a quick flick through & there doesn't look anything wildly inappropriate. A throwaway comment that the main character isn't likely to do "hard drugs" mentions of stuff she won't do like nudity or advertise sanitary products or anything involving more than kissing. Quite a few references to flirting with and fancying boys - kissing is described as sucking someone's face.

It's just written in an older way especially references to schoolwork & stuff. I can't see it interesting a younger child to be honest. There are too many references they won't get.

Thank you for your reply, I think I'll wait a few more years.
