Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (4):

NONE OF THE ABOVE follows a pretty typical "problem novel" formula, and readers might find it more educational than entertaining. But the book does provide solid information about what it means to be intersex, and it will challenge teens to think about some pretty big questions, such as: What does it mean to be a girl or a boy -- and why do only those two categories exist?

There are now lots of books about gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transsexual characters that make readers think about gender and sexuality; author I.W. Gregorio -- a surgeon who's worked with a young patient with Krissy's diagnosis -- should be applauded for widening the tent even further.

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.
