Why Another Review Site

Generally most book reviews found in professional library and book trade publications comment on excessive use of profanity and vulgar language, but, as we all know, those standards have changed significantly through the years, and  words once considered by publishers as objectionable are no longer considered so, such as “shit,” “fuck,” “dick,” “cunt” and “douchebag” (with all their variations), to name a few.  Likewise, disparaging references to deities (“Jesus Christ,” in particular) are becoming more commonplace.  You will have to look long and hard to find a YA novel with none of these words in it. Our intent is to illustrate the frequency of such in the books we review.
