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.

Community Reviews

age 13+

It was okay, very funny but some iffy stuff.

My daughter has read this a number of times, so one day I wanted to see why she liked it so much. After finishing it, I was horrified. Madison's profile gets hacked by her best friend, Ruth. There is a lot of talk of hooking up, drinking and gossip. Although it was funny at parts, it was not a very nice book and I will make sure that before Sophi reads another book about internet bullying or hacking, I will read it first.
