Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This is a sweet, fast read with a positive message about how to face challenges. Readers can identify with having a tween crush and balancing responsibilities at school with those at home. Sophia, called by her sixth grade friends "the Queen of Organization," is the kind of kid who's passionate about different things in life, such as sports and computers.

The cast of characters here is diverse, but at times it feels forced, almost stereotypical. For example, Sammy, the boy crush, is described as having "the nicest smile, the deepest, brownest eyes that matched his dark skin, and the thickest, longest eyelashes I'd ever seen."

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.
