Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

Not only a first-rate thriller, this novel also presents a challenge to readers to speak out against racism and prejudice in their schools and communities. Hollow Fires is intense, and readers should be prepared for a storyline filled with disturbing and sometimes shocking instances of hate speech and Islamaphobia.

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.
