Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

In mashed-up English and Spanish, this tween hero's tale will have readers cheering her on as she digs for the truth, stands up for herself and her friends, and gets handy with a welding gun. There's lots to love in the characters, the discoveries they make and the ways they develop along the way. A lot of heavy issues are part of the story fabric: culture clash, PTSD, discrimination, immigration, injustice, and sometimes just plain nastiness and ignorance. But with Each Tiny Spark, the love of family and friends is stronger.

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.
