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.

age 18+

Not appropriate for 14 year olds as rated

Even though this book might have a good story line, there is way too much sex, underage drinking, swearing, etc. for middle schoolers. After I was shown a couple of pages in the book then I had my daughter stop reading it.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
