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.

Not a children's book

This book blindsided me. I went in thinking I was reading YA Little Red Riding Hood retelling, but what I got was an erotica book marketed for teens with a feminist, anti-male agenda. This is a book for adults or young adults ages 18+.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Dark and Intriguing

This book disturbed me quite a lot though there are some good messages. It has an interesting plot and It kept me entertained throughout. I would recommend this for children who are more mature. It has some moderate sex scenes and heavy cussing.
