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.

It's just a biography hidden to look like a self help book

It's alot about who Lily Singh is and her career history and her YouTube videos and most of her videos are written by her and make jokes about Americans and White people, so just know if your supporting her book you are supporting her racism, I was sorry I actually waisted time reading her book I thought I was going to learn something I didn't already know but she's just a YouTuber she has no education has never done research so the book is more like a biography advertised as a self help book, it may be good for older teens to read it may help them develop self confidence.
