Is It Any Good?

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

Unlike anything most teens have ever read, this sometimes challenging blend of prose and poetry is ultimately a relatable story of grief, addiction, and love. While I Felt a Funeral, in My Brain may initially get a "Poetry? No way" reaction from some teens, it won't take long before they find themselves letting go of any doubts or fears about reading this unconventional novel and being captivated by Avery's story.

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.
