From the critics
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Cf. the pimp and prostitue above. She escapes completely unharmed and the scene is absolutely hilarious, but it might trigger.
Sexual Content: The main character lures a man who tried to use her for phone sex to a house, and then pummels him mercilessly. She also has a run in with a pimp, his prostitutes and the possibility of being raped
Violence: There are at least two or three scenes in which the main character delivers a well-deserved pummeling to a chauvenist man, one in which she is being set up for rape (see below).

From that time on, James hated Jews.
