Adolescence Is Hard

The first book painted an ideal picture of the mother daughter relationship, and I'm glad that this book departed from that picture. Adolescence is hard, and uncomfortable, and puts strain on families. This book depicted that strain while still telling it's beautiful story with poetic words and elegant images.

Is it weird that books are unrated? I would never want this book censored, but it seems like we could have some indication of what to expect. If a young boy picked the book up thinking it was just some comic he might be shocked by what he saw and learned.

Content Advisory Spoiler (scroll down for it):

Ehwah learns to masturbate. It's a tasteful scene, but I can imagine being shocked if you didn't expect it. That is all.
