Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (4):

In this look at the online world written with plenty of Web/text/IM slang, teens will identify with the rapid-fire blogging lifestyle that feels as if the world isn't real until you blog about it. The main character, Sarah, is self-absorbed and really angsty a lot of the time, which can get a little old, but she experiences a nice evolution and the end's plot twist will surprise many.

What readers will really like about the book is its conversational blogging style and humor. In the middle of blowing off some steam via her blog, Sarah is prompted by a Web survey to look under her bed and report her findings. The contents are both amusing and so utterly teen girl, it's hilarious: empty chocolate wrappers and old diaries that are full of earlier, younger angst, the likes of which completely embarrass Sarah with the slight irony that in time, her blog will evoke the same feelings.

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.
