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.

Cute storyline but poorly executed

I really wanted to like this book. I thought a story about a teen filmmaker would be cute and lighthearted. However, I found a story about a whiny teen who could not understand boys to save her life. She is absolutely clueless that one guy likes her (even though it's completely obvious). When she gets to the actual filmmaking, she's an absolute jerk to her co-workers and doesn't even notice that she is the one being a jerk. Aside from the disappointing execution of the book, this book had about 3 uses of the s-word, numerous uses of the h-word, d-word, and b-----d. There was some kissing, and there was a gay couple.

Too much sex
