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.

Look forward to seeing the movie

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I think the book will be a bit different from the movie. The movie looks like it makes the girl extremely stupid as shown on the previews that she ends up googling the word 'finance'. But, in the book, she is pretty smart about finance. It's just she has a hard time practicing it. There is some language in the book, and of course drinking and only a little sex at the end. I definately don't encourage pre-teens to read it. I look forward to seeing the movie!
