Kids say: Not yet rated

More than a transgender romance, this is a simple and sensitively told story about first love, finding your own identity, acceptance, and grief. Chris and Maia's storylines in Something Like Gravity also tackle some serious issues often faced by teens: bullying, conflicts with parents, and the hurt that can come from changing relationships with their closest friends.

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.
