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.

A new Artemis...

Having read the previous Artemis Fowl books, this is a nice conclusion. Only Opal could pull it off. A warning:There is a death of a major character at the beginning. It is a bit shocking. This book is very fast paced. You will hardly have time to catch your breath. Well worth reading.
