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.

It's a beautiful story, beautiful friendship, love the super power fantasies.. but extremely depressing when Jessica arrives. Love the story and I'm glad it's just fictional, but if it were true.. best wishes to Jessica. :)
