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.

Well a little... YEAH

It talks about some STUFF that teenagers talk about. It cusses some (piss and hell) and it says when Jack (looks like Ellie since they swapped) gets a well visit he goes, “Well at least their isnt penises on the walls”. And they talk about periods. Its a good books for teens or pre teens that know about “that stuff”

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
