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.

age 14+

Appropriate for teens

A fair amount of swearing, as well as some kissing and some brief implied sexual content. There's also violence, especially as the book draws to a close, but it's far from gratuitous. Overall, the book deals with themes like friendship, family, honesty, identity, and the transition to adulthood.
