I recall this book from my school days. My daughter now has it. I looked through it and I noticed profanity and low ways of speaking. It seems that the profanity depicted would violate the Second Commandment for someone to say it. I think that reading it can also violate the Second Commandment especially if one identifies with the abuse of the name of God. I don't want my children reading such books.
We don't typically allow religious activities in schools but it seems that we allow materials that could adversely affect a child, especially an impressionable one. I think that this is at least partly why we have a crisis of culture. We require our children to read books that expose them to profanity and negativity.
Do some Catholic high schools also require this book to be read?
