Not literary, but fun teen fantasy (and plenty of romance).

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Well, this is certainly not going to meet anyone's definition of a classic, but it is good fun. There are mythical creatures, a dark mystery, a romance, and even some humor along the way ("Minions!" Thinks Kaylee during her final face off with a grim reaper "She did not just call me a minion!"). Readers may be surprised that Kaylee can process so much in just four days -- from finding out she's not human to hooking up with her first boyfriend (not to mention discovering why all the pretty girls around her keep dropping dead for no reason). But those who love a fast-paced fantasy novel will keep up with this plot-heavy book -- the first in a series -- and eagerly await the next installment about the feisty heroine.

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.
