Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Martin does a great job of developing believable, likable characters. The story is compelling and engaging, and teens will definitely be able to relate to all the teen angst and drama.

However, there isn't anything really new or different here. The book is a pretty typical coming-of-age story with difficult life situations many teens encounter while dealing with raging hormones, high school social anxiety, and questions about who they are as people. Teens will enjoy the book, but may not necessarily remember it after they finish the last page.

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.
