Kids say (3 ):

Time travel is a potent element to add to a thriller, and this psychological mystery pulls it off. Co-authors James Patterson and Emily Raymond wring the maximum amount of suspense out of their haunting scenario in The Girl in the Castle. Hannah is a powerful main character -- in whichever time frame she finds herself. The ending comes with plenty of surprises.

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.
