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.

Quirky, imaginative, ok for older teens

The stories are interlocking different scenarios that all lead out from the same base. Characters are late teens and twenties so there was more drinking and mentions of sharing beds than I would want for my twelve year old. Entertaining, solid read, but not a breakout star for me.

What a mess

This book was a headache. Poorly written and relied so heavily on strange and ridiculous to draw you into the story. No cohesion, I lost interest and forced myself to finish it hoping it would get better but it didn't. I don't see literary value in this at all.
