    15 People Who Think J.K. Rowling's Racy New Book Has Ruined Their Childhood

    The Harry Potter author's new book for adults, The Casual Vacancy, includes sex scenes and a lot of curse words. In other words: CHILDHOOD = RUINED.

    J.K. Rowling has graduated (for now, at least!) from writing books intended for kids, which means, obviously, that your childhood is finished.
