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.

Good series, just not for most teenagers

As an adult, I am enjoying the series, but I wouldn't let me teenager read it. The series portrays it as completely normal for all teenagers to be involved with drugs, drinking, and sex [SPOILER: even incestuous sex]. Parents and other authority figures are shown as not having an issue with the continual underage drinking and are either oblivious or turn a blind eye to most of the other inappropriate behavior. My kid enjoys book series that are futuristic/otherworldly/ science fiction, but there are plenty of other series out there that actually have good role models to choose from.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
