Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Readers will enjoy the recurring and new characters, especially the students at Hyde, in THE UNBOUND, a solid follow-up to The Archived. Mackenzie's ongoing fear of Book 1's antagonist may seem excessive, but as with all elements of the story, there's a good reason for it that makes for fun reading. Readers will cheer this strong heroine, who finds her feelings for Wes tested by a love triangle. A fast-moving tale with exciting action and fighting scenes, The Unbound sets up the next book and leaves readers wanting more.

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.
