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.

No way this should be JF book!

This is a very well written book with an interesting plot and good story. However, it is probably one of the more scary books I have ever read. There is no way it should be shelved in the juvenile fiction part of the library - definitely more young adult. I read it before passing it on to my almost 13 year olds and am very glad I did! We will be holding off for at least another 2 years on this one!
