I also read “Clan of the Cave Bear” in 7th Grade

They seem fine to me. I read a number of them in 7-8th grade and that was back in … 1984/1985. Some I read in 6th grade like Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer. A few I read in 9th. I’d say it’s on target.

I’ve either read them all, or have a basic familiarity with them. Call of the Wild was 7th grade and that book haunted me for quite some time.

I also read “Clan of the Cave Bear” in 7th Grade. I didn’t know it was a prehistoric romance novel. To me, it was about this first human lady and I was fascinated by the different culture of the Neadrathals from what I was accustomed to. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

I read the sexy scenes too but since it happened 125000 years ago, I figured that was normal for the time and I knew it was fiction in any case.

One teacher was a little scandalized that I read it. She was not happy at all. I read it because it looked interesting in the public library and you know what? It was.
