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.

Many Waters is a Dark Book and Not for Everybody

Too much sex
age 15+


I think this book is a product of another time. I don't see the phrases "an easy lay" and "a slut" as having any place in describing a young woman regardless of her pattern of behaviour. All the angels are male. The fallen angels groom young women to have sex and bare children for them. I'm a huge fan of the Wrinkle in Time series. This book made my skin crawl.
