Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Book. Very Surprising. :) When I saw this book , it was in one of my friends lockers at school. She had just started reading it and said I could have it when she was done. But I just couldn't wait any longer and took it . This book was pretty good. But it was different, definetly different than what the cover makes it look like. I thought it was amazing because this attractive rich teenager goes from her mothers loft, to an almost abandoned town in Nova Scotia in the spanned of about 2 or 3 days. It surprised me durastically at the things that happen in this book . while reading it though , I had to let the book never leave my sight. One of my best friends Jacob would take the book when I wasn't looking and start reading it his self. So, that already tells you that the book is a good read seeing as so many people are wanting to read it. Getting back on topic, I think this book is very good. But I think there should have been way more romance. Lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Suitable For Family Viewing when you look at this book you should think about the saying " don't judge a book by its cover", because this is one of those books! you should also think " don't judge a book by its title! thats something i made up but it is true! in my opinion the cover of this book made it look and sound a bit inappropriate, but when i read the actual book it was fantastic! i totally loved it! the beginning was a bit boring but i kept reading and it was awesome! i definetly recommend it! bye!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delightful! Entertaining and heartfelt! A true Vicki Grant classic! Vicki's writing brings a unique brand of humour to the creation of her characters interwoven with insight and understanding. And this is her best novel yet! It is also refreshing to read a novel set in Nova Scotia. Certainly not just for tweens. Kudos to Vicki Grant!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good When I first started reading Not Suitable for Family Viewing I thought it was going to be yet another one of those books where the celebrities teenaged daughter would be a Paris Hilton type and the storyline would be all about her and her equally rich friends doing stupid things. I was extremely surprised when I discovered that this is not the direction this book was heading into at all. Robin is supposed to be on top of the world, she is the daughter of talk-show host Mimi - they have it all, yet Robin can't seem to get it together, not even long enough to get out of a dark room - Robin is obviously depressed and nobody seems to be "getting" that. However, life has something in mind for Robin when she discoveres, purely by accident a ring that will send Robin on a quest to find out about a much hidden past history belonging to her family - in the process Robin will also discover much about herself and her role in her own family. This book was absolutely delightful. Although it is entertaining and a fun read, it is also loaded with both hidden and open messages about ife and how to never judge a book by its cover. Author Grant does a fine job of showing the growth process Robin will go through as she discovers more about herself and her family - making her understand who she is a little bit more. Very well written, without ever being too preachy.
