Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

This thriller ticks the boxes for scary, creepy, and unexpected twists and, despite all the blood and gore, should please even those who cover their eyes in scary movies. One area in which Two Truths and a Lie falters is giving readers a real window into the lives of the teen characters. Nell, Jermaine, and Dev are well drawn, but the two characters about whom readers learn the most are adults: Stuart the hotel owner and Travis the handyman.

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.
