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.

There was a moment when 2 of the characters nearly had sex, and the f-bomb was thrown out twice. Other than those things... It was quite interesting, and showed that the author put alot of research into making this book as realistic as possible. Some of the scientific explanations would go over the heads of 13 year olds, and some of the content would also be a bit much. (Language, and sex)

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
