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.

Read yourself and let your kids read it.

Smart kids in AP classes are very smart about how their parents influence them. Frank and his non Korean girlfriend must hide their dating from Franks Korean parents. Many good thoughtful scenarios where smart kids try to do the right things. I thought language was too peppered with profanity in authors effort to be “relatable”. But kids will probably hardly notice. These kids spend lots of time studying and aiming for near perfect SAT scores. Non drinkers too.
