Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Author Sandhya Menon blends a sweet and engaging opposites-attract romance with thoughtful storylines about friendship, forgiveness, and never being quick to judge. Although the cast of characters in Of Curses and Kisses are rich and privileged teens, Menon focuses on the things they may have in common with most readers (making bad choices in dating, broken friendships, and dealing with parent's expectations) rather than portraying them as stereotypical jet-setting teens.

Did we miss something on diversity?

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.
