Jody, Funny you should ask... It was not 24 hours ago that I had a
discussion with my 6th grader regarding this series...I'm not real thrilled
with the content of this series and am not going to push her reading of it.
Joyce Frye read the first book in the series to them in class but I don't
know if she will continue with any others.

I need to get a hold of one of the books and really look it over before I
can really be bull-headed over this issue.
