Is it possible to restrict a book search to age/reading level?

For example, when I search for Horror books, I do not want R.L. Stine books to be returned.

(no offense, my girls LOVE those, but they are 7!)

If this is a current feature, can someone enlighten me as to the method, or if it is not, could it be implemented somehow?

I have my settings exclude Children's Books when I search, but if you use the genre search very few Stine books show up.

I just found 4701 "Horror" books, when I added "stine" as the author in that genre only 16 showed up.  You can exclude an author from a genre search just by adding a "-", so a genre search for Horror with the author "-stine" found 4686 results.

Edited for pre-coffee typing.
