Let the parent know that Publishers Weekly gave it a recommendation for readers 12 and older and thought it was a meaningful novel for juvenile readers calling it "an intriguing cross between Candide and Huckleberry Finn".

Help! I am a 7th/8th grade literature teacher trying to calm a parent who is furious with me for encouraging her seventh grade son to read Lizard. How do I convince her that I truly believed her son was mature enough to be able to read this marvelous novel? She doesn't think this novel should be read by anyone under sixteen!!!
