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.

Dark read

The book is too dark and the ending is sad. I made the mistake of reading this for my 9 year-old son. We'd already read Beyond the Bright Sea by the same author so I never thought this book would be unsuitable for him. I was disappointed overall.

This title has:

Too much violence
age 12+

Fab book. I cried (and I'm a cynical, hardened 39 year old).

This book is brilliant, but the more you think about it, the more dark it is. The bully is evil and is never really exonnerrated. People die. People get injured. Not everything that happens in the book is just. It made me, as an adult cry. Make sure your kid is either over 12 or emotionally robust! But blimey; what a book! Read it yourself first: it'll be a pleasure, I assure you.
