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.

Very inappropriate for young kids

I bought this for my 9 year old son that loves Star Wars and he came up to me and said mom the book talks about girls having to please Jana??? I said what and went to see one of the parts he referred me to pg.43, I almost could not believe it the book was mentioned for years 9 and up. So I decided that was totally misleading for parents and be aware if you do buy it. I won’t be buying anymore of this kind for my son.

This title has:

Too much sex
