Is It Any Good?

Kids say (4):

In a market glutted with post-apocalyptic tales featuring spunky heroines, PARTIALS stands apart. The world-building is complex, and the plot's scientific underpinnings ring true. The action is intense, but the bloodshed isn't gratuitous. Main character Kira first seems a little too good to be true, but the author has a few tricks up his sleeve for her and the readers. This is only the first volume of a proposed trilogy, and it will leave many readers eagerly awaiting the next installment without feeling that the author is stringing them along.

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.
