YES, THE WHEEL OF TIME IS AN ADULT FANTASY BOOK, BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN I CAN'T ENJOY READING IT! I SWEAR, CHAPTER 13, BOOK 9, WAS THE MOST INAPPROPRIATE PART OF THE WHOLE BOOK SERIES. THERE WERE NO DETAILS! IT WAS NEVER SAID ALOUD, JUST IMPLIED! - Merilille

Everyone uses 12 as an insult

Everyone does I get very offended on a lot of websites

What are you 12?

Sometimes you want to be a teen and sometimes you want to be a kid

Sometimes I feel like a kid and a teen and it gets very hard to tell what I am.

You are too young to earn your own money

I get you, I'm broke
