"The author's perspective was interesting. . . . but I did not like how she mentioned drugs and several inappropriate things." Haejin
I admit, Hinton's classic young adult book can be a bit of a shock, with it's realistic portrayal of gang wars, friendship and alienation back in the '60s, so I'm sorry Haejin did not enjoy the book. Still, many others have read it (over 13 million copies sold to date) and enjoyed the tale!
