These pages are packed with enticing contrasts -- a fast-paced adventure and slow unfolding of personal stories, high-tech gadgets battling basic supplies, brilliant kids vs. powerful adults. Max Einstein: Saves the Future is a fun read that brings science to young adventurers, with Max explaining mid-getaway why her plan for using heat to confuse drones will work, or the drawings showing the physics behind using luggage as a weapon. Max's personal story offers a lot of time for reflection, and that this isn't seen as a weakness offers readers a chance to see parts of themselves in her struggles. The friendships between the kids of the Change Makers Institute are both lighthearted and deep, and the good-vs.-evil quest is just plain fun.

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.
