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.

Great novel. IMHO, not for kids.

Graphic language. Pervasive criminal and antisocial behavior from most characters including violent assault. Pervasive smoking, drinking, and drug use. Occasional references to sex. Focus on fear, supernatural events, and dysfunctional families. Central plot theme involves a murder with subsequent dismemberment. A great novel. IMHO, not for kids.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
