Is this a perfect book? No. Do I think it should be a part of middle school reading? Yes. This book is smart use of our own intuition in possible bad situations. There is a bit of a rant at the end but aside from the rant, there is a lot of good information on looking for danger signs in things happening around us. I recommend this book to those around you that you care about. If you have doubts, it is a small book. Read it.
