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.

Its a okay book but there are some sex contents.

A"Girl Power" book

It's a good book if you are looking for a book to give your children the confidence that the don't need a man and what might be the signs that you need to get up of the relationship. but there are quite a few moments that are not for the younger ones. There is some under age drinking, sexually active teens, the subject of getting pregnant before marriage and some strong language. If you have a close enough relationship with your child, you might want to read them this one out loud, so that you can change some of the language or the scenes about sex. but otherwise this is a good book to prove that girls don't need a man to be happy.
