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.

I read this for a banned book project in my English class. I really liked it. I'll be 18 friday but. The book is very sexual but like it should be read by matured teens. Also if your kids dont know about sex yet and you don't want them to don't let them read it. But I would say 16+ because of a lot of teen pregnancys
