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.

I haven’t read this entire book. I read the first book in the series and started this one yesterday, but I was very disturbed on the first page. Language is mentioned in the review, but I was surprised by what I saw. “And that’s what I’m going to say when I find you and shove it in your mouth hole. Gross. At least this guy didn’t include a dick pic.” I can’t imagine that to be okay for Jr. High students, so I sent it back to the school and would not let my daughter read it.
