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.

SATISFACTION

This book was the first one to ever give me satisfaction, because I have read a lot of books with plot twists and cliff hangers and its kind of annoying. I have never founded a book that could satisfy me that is why I gave up reading, after however I was tempted to read this book, I never regretted it. FUNNY, SIMPLE, and DECENT makes me feel satisfied with my life after reading this book, still sourcing for more books like these and hoping I could find more books that could extend my satisfaction (I may like typically contemporary styled stories with the plot twists and cliff hangers and all, but because its beginning to be too cliché in the modern world, its beginning to eat my brain so yep it is also one of the reasons why I admire the creation of this book so much) :-)
