This charming, sweet romantic comedy tackles the serious issue of body shaming and being judged only by how you appear on the outside. In There's Something About Sweetie, author Sandhya Menon once again features a seemingly unlikely love match between two Indian American teens. But this time, readers may find that the unfolding romance isn't quite as believable, as both Ashish and Sweetie often speak and behave in ways that make them seem wise way beyond their years.

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.
