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.

Great Storyline but HIGHLY sexualized

It’s easy to fall in love with the characters and the storyline of this show but it’s not for younger teens at all, in my opinion. It’s hard to think that anyone would allow a 13 or 14 year old to watch some of the extremely suggestive scenes of teenagers getting naked together or actually having sex. It’s a shame that Netflix had to make it this racy.
