NOTE: The book contains certain implications that may be offensive to some readers. In addition, foul language and sexually explicit scenes are embedded within the entire book. If one feels strongly about offensive scenes and language, this is not the book for you. If one finds these types of scenarios and language appealing, this is definitely a must read. Furthermore, Mount St. Mary's College and its contributing pupils are not responsible for the foul language displayed on the site. We are trying to be as accurate as possible with Spanish interpretations.
