Anyone read this book? A book club in my area is doing it and I am trying to decide whether I am interested. link

A homeschooling friend of our lent us a copy a few years ago.  We loved it!  My 14-year-old recently decided to re-read it for fun, and tells me she still enjoys it.  It's been a few years since I've read it myself, so I don't remember if there are any particulars you should watch out for if you have younger readers in the club.  I remember that the family parrot came from another owner that taught it "bad words," but my daughter tells me that no bad words appear in the text.  (You just find out that the children are taught not to say "parrot words.") :)
