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.

Love this series!

Welcome to Rosewood, Pennsylvania, where there were 5 beautiful girls who ruled the private school's social status. This is the summary of the 1st book: Hanna, Spencer, Emily, Aria... and Allison. BFFs for life. Then, one night Allison mysteriously disappeared. And then she was declared dead, a few laters later. But they got a message at the funeral that read, "I'm still here, (B word), and I know everything." Stuff happens after that... and then we're at the sequel, which I absolutely loved. Aria's in love with her teacher, and their relationship is getting serious... Hanna's about to lose her best friend.... Spencer is stealing from her sister... and Emily is freaking out over a simple kiss. The plot sounds mature, but this is simply PLL for you. Like in the first, there's tons of swearing (from mild to the worse), drinking (underage girls throw parties), romance (which gets more and more as the books progress), violence( the occasional body, the occasional murder...), and consumerism (Volvo, Prada, Gucci, Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, Harry Winston, Armani, ect.) This is a great series, but it's not for younger kids.
