With the wild cosmology, chaotic time-shifting, comic book sensibility, and character development of much-tried teen heroes, there's a lot happening in this imaginative installment. It's a lot to keep track of, with monsters, mythology, some really nasty villains, and death and destruction in numerous timelines. The Song of Glory and Ghost is a wild, exciting ride, especially for tween readers, who may feel much the same as Sam and Glory's new redheaded fangirl from postapocalyptic Seattle:

"What would you do if you were me, living on smoked fish and twenty-year-old enchilada sauce, and then two comic book characters show up? Even if you are bad, I'm still glad I jumped through that hole after you."

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.
