An amazing read, I recommend to ages 14 and up because of the sexual reference and drug use as well as mild course language.

CLOCKWORK PRINCESS is a fantastic book that will pull at your heartstrings from beginning to end. The love triangle between Tessa, Jem, and Will becomes so painful at times that readers may want to send the book flying across the room. This just shows that Cassandra Clare is an enthralling storyteller whose readers will become emotionally invested in her plot and characters.

Clockwork Princess is wildly imaginative as it examines themes of marriage, family, dictatorship, and democracy. Characters grow to learn that true love is blind, sometimes your strongest family is the one you choose for yourself, and what happens to a society when citizens do not question their leader.

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.
