Kids say (2 ):

Based on real events and issues, this tension-filled coming-of-age novel tackles a big topic: the ethics surrounding the surveillance of Muslim Americans. For readers less interested in politics than characters, Watched offers a storyline that's relatable across cultural and religious boundaries of a teen who's made some bad choices and is trying to put his life back on the right track.

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.
