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.

Community Reviews

age 18+

Very poorly written and uninspired.

I felt this book was very poorly written and not well constructed. It seemed like the author tried to jam three books worth of content into one book. The writing style felt very childish, very choppy and the book focused a lot more on the couple in the book than on the actual plot. I didn’t see any consistent or outstanding virtues or morals in this book. In fact, some scenes between the young, teen main characters were mildly inappropriate. Overall the book gave off a rather immature vibe and felt hastily done, leaving the reader feeling dissatisfied with many aspects of the story and ultimately coming to a very dis functional, inappropriate and extremely disappointing end.
