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 enjoyable read!

I thought this book was very good! I liked the characters and the story-line (although I feel like the story didn't quite reach it's full potential). I was honestly hoping for a little more humor, too. There are a couple iffy themes to the book that may be off for younger teens. This was a very quick read and I would recommend it!

This title has:

Great role models
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
