This is a great read and I didn't see any content that was "disgusting" or inappropriate for readers 12 and up. There are a couple of refereneces to kids at a party "sucking face", but that was the extent of it. Mac's lifestyle and relationship with his mother was not one of neglect, but one of obvious caring and trust. This is a good story that I think young boys especially will enjoy and parents can be assured that it is one that promotes imagination, self assuredness and independence. Not a bad bunch of lessons.
