A thought for parents- if your teens read this, you need to have The Talk about not taking what they read as an excuse for trying to get STD's or a pregnancy / paternity suit. It's true that in Elizabeth's day adolescents were apt to be married, and so were sometimes tempted to get the bedding ahead of the wedding, but they were also expected to be taking on adult workloads. Today's youngsters are apt to only see what they were allowed to do, and not notice the requirements of adult responsibilities as well as adult privileges.
Having said all of which, it's a good story, and provides interesting insights into the strains of being a royal child in those difficult times. If you like the book, but object to some of the content, you can always do what I did and use White Out so that the next time you read it you'll just skip past the parts you find objectionable.
