My son, 12, is looking at a few books and I have no idea if they're age appropriate.
Anyone read Wolf of the North? Is it ok for a 12 year old?
It's perfectly fine to want to have an idea what content is included in the books your kid reads. You're the parent, you know what your child is ready for. Heck, sometimes I'd like to get an idea myself. There are many reviewers I follow on YouTube who will tell you if there is disturbing content that might be triggers (rape, abuse, drug use, etc.), so it's not unheard of.
As mentioned, I'd just check Goodreads and Amazon reviews. Or you could read the book yourself. I did as much for The Hunger Games trilogy. When I read the first book, my daughter was a bit too young for some of the themes because she was kind of a scary kid. I waited until the following year and gave her the trilogy when I knew she could handle it.
Um, personally I stay away from the religious review sites. Common Sense Media is a bit more realistic, just giving ideas of content without being biased. I'm not sure how often they update though.
