Is It Any Good?

Make no mistake: This site exists to promote the line of Beacon books, which it does by offering book-centric items including reviews, sample chapters, book cover posters, and a downloadable timer that counts down the days, minutes, hours, and even seconds until the next Beacon Street Girls book release. also conveniently features an extensive online store where girls can buy character-themed, $30 body care product sets and a $78 "sleepover special" kit containing a bag, backpack, door pillow, and journal. But, once you sift through the ads and products, there is some fun, creative stuff -- especially the online movie making game, which lets users craft a cartoon-like short film by picking backgrounds, characters, and music.

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.
