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.

Great transition book from kid fantasy to tween drama

I read both books before my 6th grade daughter did to make sure it was appropriate. She normally reads fantasy books so this was a great transition into middle school fiction and the teen drama. The main characters all ultimately care about each other and make positive decisions for the good of one another. My daughter liked the concept of what do her normal book characters do when she closes a book. Parents should know that the book does reference a character who is homosexual and brings his boyfriend to a party. Another student teaches a boy how to spell the word boobs on a calculator.
