The characters in this book go through some things. While that is, sadly, their lot in life– being characters in my book–it is unfortunately also true that some readers will have experienced similar traumas. I want everyone who reads this tale to find some measure of enjoyment out of it; I also know that some subjects are just too upsetting and ruin our individual attachment to a book. I, personally, have a hard time with media and written discussions of suicide. There have been several shows, movies, and books, that I wish I’d had some warning would be dealing with suicide. Therefore, I have composed this content warning in an effort to prepare you, the reader, for what you will find once you dive into Vivian Richards’s world.
This book contains the following subject matter. This is not an exhaustive list, but I’ve tried to include the subjects that might be upsetting.
-gun violence, including murder
-homelessness and food insecurity
-violence against women, including sexual violence
-drug and alcohol abuse
-sex (both described and implied)
-coarse, vulgar, and profane language
