Kids say (3 ):

Horror fans will enjoy this take on teen-werewolf theme for the way it showcases girl power, friendship and loyalty, but some iffy messages are problematic. Squad points out a lot of frustrations, dangers, and problems people deal with every day, and which teens will easily relate to, but it doesn't offer any real-world solutions. Negative examples offer a lot of food for thought, and good conversation starters about microagression, victim blaming, sexual predators, double standards, prejudice, how women are depicted in pop culture, and more. The colorful illustrations effectively show both action and emotion in a classice style with a retro, '80s color scheme. Gory violence, strong language, and excessive drinking make it best for teens and up.

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.
