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.

Not impressed

Well this author really wants you to know she’s a far left leaning liberal. She virtue-signaled throughout the book and hit all the trendy liberal talking points. Maybe she should’ve spent a little bit more time developing a cohesive storyline that was at least mildly entertaining.
