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.

Exciting Dystopian Sci-Fi Series

Alight is not as stressful to read as Alive since the reader has a better understanding of what is happening. There are still more questions that are answered in this book as well as twists and turns. There is more language in this book especially religious no-no's. The violence is still there as well as gore. There is great character development in this one as well as messages. Same as the first, this is tough to put down. The final book in the trilogy is Alone.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
