Kids say (3 ):

GAME CHANGER has an intriguing concept, but it takes a very long time for it to develop. KT wakes up in a strange world, and while it's reasonable for her to be confused, it always feels as if she's a step or two behind the alert reader in sussing out what's going on. It also doesn't help that she and her family are all depicted as self-absorbed whiners for much of the book. Eventually, however, the plot takes an interesting twist, and the characters begin acting more sympathetically as the action builds to a suspenseful and affecting climax.

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.
