I was 11 when I started the series. so in that point it's not that bad and it's not a sex scene.

i believe, 10 is the minimum age to read this series, it has some themes to it that younger people may not understand, such as humer and sarcasm

Lol. I used to think sex was scary. I think the age is like 12, that's my opinion.

I started to read the books when i was 11 and i think that 12 is a good age because even though zoey has sex in the third book she regrets the whole rest of the series and i do think that you should let your daughter read twilight if you haven't already because bella waits to get married to do anything

i think that with all the swearing, sex and evil in this book i would say 15 and older would be a reasonable age to read it... and i know for sure that i wont be letting my daughter read it until shes that age but that another 9 years away lol

If you think about film ratings and then compare to the book it would be around 12-13.
In England, a film rated 12, usually involves extremely minor swearing (like once maybe twice in the entire thing) or a sex scene that doesn't really reveal anything, like, you know what's happening without anything happening on screen. (If that makes sense)

So I think 12 is a good age to read the books, most 12 year olds now days understand what sex is and they often hear swearing so it wouldn't shock them overly...

well i dont know about you but i certainly dont want this movie to be made as a PG film and if it was you can count on them skimping out in the fighting and stuff... even Harry Potter was rated for viewers 15 and older or 13 if you have parents consent and harry potter has nothing on this series

I agree with Rose.
And about the HP thing, yes that's true, but I think they rated it for viewers 15 and older because of Voldermort or have you spell it, and the fights with him and the deaths and all. Which I think is weird because it wasn't scary at all.

All I can state for a fact is that I'm twelve and I started reading the books when I was eleven. Not permanently scarred nor do I give much thought into the more explicit scenes in the book, but it all depends on what you think. If you are a parent, whose not to say you can't read the book and decide on which of an appropriate age to let your child read would be?

Personally, I believe it all depends on what you're ready to expose your child to.

Honestly, if I was 12 and my Mum tried to stop me reading a book found in the Young Adult section of the bookshop I'd be pretty angry, the publishers choose the ratings in which books are given, just like there's a company who rates the movies too.
Since there are a whole group of people who decided it to be in that sections then surely letting people of that age read it is allowed. I know being a parent changes things, although, not being a parent myself makes my view biased.

Exactly what Rosey said. They're put in the Young Adult section for a reason. As soon as you know it's in there, you might want to think about if you'd consider your child a "Young Adult" or not.

i dont class 12 year olds as young adults.. i class them as kids and i do know that not all 12 year olds are the same but most of the ones i know are still too immature to be reading it but my sister who is 12 i think she would be classed as a young adult because she is a very mature 12 year old

the thing is that most girls that are twelve are mature enough to read the young adult books most of the books that are made for twelve year olds are much to childish so I think that the ratings are useless minus to tell you where your books are located in the book store
