I loved this book it was interesting and engrossing. Even though Dylann's is a fraud and she is lying to people you still root for her and understand her need to belong. While the book is a bit critical of this super paternalistic religious society where the father rules his household with an iron fist it is not critical of any mainline faith or religion. I loved the relationship that Dylann has with Abigail (and her hunky older brother) and the complexities that happen because of her lie.
Appropriateness: Aside from the sexting disaster that starts the entire story (which is a good lesson) and quite a bit of lying to parents there is no adult behavior. I would recommend this book to teens 13+ (along with a basic reminder of how to deal with internet safety).
