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.

go big or go home

this is a good book even if I’m not a big fan of sports I would give this either a 3 and a half or 4 out of 5 in the end when they we’re trying to win a basketball game at a second chance tournament and one of the rival players hurt his foot Greg mum said he could take his place I was a little confused especially when she was booing her own son but it turned out she put him on there team so they’ll lose since he terrible at sports but her plan backfired when he actually scored and won that was a little funny my favourite bit was when Greg was at a football game when he was younger so yeah this was a good book
