Read full description of the books Valiant:I think the main reasons most people don't like this series, older adults and parents especially, are because:
a. they don't want their own children, whether young or old teenagers, to be exposed to such drug/profanity use, even though most teenagers have already been exposed in high school settings, even as young as middle school, and/or
b. they can't possibly believe that teenagers have actually lived in poor conditions.
I have to admit that this book's not as good as the first, Tithe. But I don't know, I laugh when I read all the reviews saying books like these are too profane. Yes, there is very high drug use. Never is too closely described to hallucinagens than most people like. But you better hope you raised your child enough to refuse drugs, because it's your fault if your child cannot think for themself.
What did irritate me was that Black seemed to go directly to stereotypes to describe her characters. The bad connotations that come with mohawks and piercings are greatly supported here, and it's highly irritating for me, as I am a drug-free, fairly high-GPA college student with many piercings. However, in Valiant, the pierced and the mohawked will always be thieves, high school drop-outs, and druggies. Ugh.
