Overall Review:  

“The Rogue Shop” is a fantastic fiction novel aimed at members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The storyline is incredibly engaging—a little drama, a little romance, a little mystery, a little religion—and the author’s refreshingly witty writing style carries the story all the way through. Once I started reading I hated to put it down! Knudsen’s characterization is fun, spot on, and darn right inspirational."The Rogue Shop" should be the new precedent of LDS fiction.What a great read!


Content Analysis:  

“The Rogue Shop” is an overall clean read. There’s only one swear word (used in jest), and only one violent scene which involves a weapon but no casualties.

One character does recount a car accident in which someone is taken in an ambulance, but there are no graphic details to give. A few times, characters discuss the possibility of a previous rape occurrence.



Mature Subject Matter:  

I would recommend this book for age 14+ only because there is some mature subject matter.



Alcohol / Drug Use:  

Also a character is haunted by his past as an alcoholic, detailing an episode of drunkenness followed by its deadly ramifications.
