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.

Cress Rating

I think Cress is a GREAT book for kids (and teens) 13+. I think this because there are steamy kisses and there are innaporpriate suggestions. There are just a bit of swearing but I think everything else is fine for your child to read! Enjoy!
