Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This coming-of-age novel could become a classic and belongs in that rare company of books that capture what it feels like to be a teenager. Though some of the issues Birdie and her friends face in The Revolution of Birdie Randolph are contemporary (like vaping and asexuality), most are timeless: dating a boy your parents might not approve of, finding an aunt you can confide in about things you can't discuss with Mom, awakening to who your parents are as people, and the rocky path toward independence and adulthood.

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.
