Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

PG-13

Sex is a big theme in the novel, and while none of the sex is particularly steamy, it can get a tad graphic. The scene where Hannah and Bryce have sex might even rate an R in some readers' eyes. The novel also deals briefly with rape, a delicate topic which isn't necessarily suitable for much younger readers.
