I am writing a coming of age story aimed at middle grade tweens. My dilemma is, how much sex and how much violence is acceptable for this age group?
The story is set in Detroit, Michigan and main character is a 15 year old high school freshman. The range of ages for all the principle characters is 15 – 21.
I want to stay true to the grit of an urban tale without having the grit being perceived as dirt.
