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.

age 12+

A wonderful YA urban fantasy novel.

Francesca Lia Block has an otherwordly way with words. I've been reading her work since I was a teenager myself, and she was a big part of my inspiration to write. There is some swearing and violence in this book, as well as discussion (and mild action) regarding sexuality and gender, but no more than kids begin talking about in their tweens. I don't believe it's 'too much' of those subjects. If Love in the Time of Global Warming had been around when I was a kid, I think I would have felt far less isolated and more understood.
