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.

Great book, as long as your kid can handle it.

A fantastic story with a strong main character. Avoids feeling formulaic, yet manages to communicate multiple positive messages about loyalty, friendship, and duty. Beware the sequel, as after the cliffhanger this book ends on you will HAVE to read the second book, despite the fact that it is a lackluster title taking advantage of of this book's success. Regularly features graphic violence, so I wouldn't recommend to a kid below 13, as they may find some scenes disturbing.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
