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.

Bad Language, offensive portrait of blacks

My daughter who is 12 picked this book up to read, but put it down and told us it had some pretty bad language. I can't claim to know for a fact is this is correct, but she said it had like 4 "F" words and other language and she was only part way into the book. I don't like the idea that the author, though black herself, chosen to represent black people to youth with such bad language. She didn't finish the book so we don't know how much worse it got or if the people were good characters or not.
