Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Negative Girl Power

I found this book highly offensive and not age appropriate for any teen.

Caution, parents! This dark book is full of graphic violence and sex scenes (including homosexual). While one or two of the stories are uplifting, most are not.
