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.

Good for ages 10 and up

It is a good book. Has some drinking/drugs at a part in story when they stop at a bikers bar for something to eat but only a couple of pages. No real kissing or seual things except a kiss on the cheek. Other than that it was a very good book and i enjoyed reading it!

This title has:

Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
Great messages
Great role models
