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.

Do not let your child read this

It is a totally inappropriate book. I cannot believe that my daughter was able to bring home this book from her school. She is 10 years old. On page 126 it states, " Jane's mother and father are probably locked into their bedroom making love. Or maybe they did it while we were out and now they're sleeping. I don't want to think about sex anymore..... I get Jane undressed down to her shirt and her underpants"...etc...it also talks about when they first learn about sex... the language is bad and I am sick thinking that my child was expossed to this.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
