"At last, the voice of Christian common sense is heard! Nancy Brown's careful study will provide reliable guidance to Catholic parents who seek practice and impact to their children an attitude toward contemporary fiction that is both open and discerning. I warmly recommend this book." --Fr. Pierre Ingram, C.C. S.T.L.
