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.

A fine finale

There is a heavy bit of fighting in this book with a good bit of kissing. There are parts with genetic modification and using people called shells in a suspended state for there blood. If your child is a fantasy fan or has read books like the hunger games this book will be fine. The characters are strong and great female role models the males fall into what is traditionally a female helper role.

Great for kids! Loved it!

My kid loved it, but don't worry, I read it before her to make sure. She has loved the whole series. I have to say this book is the most exciting and has the most adventure. It has a little bit of violence but it's not like scary. It has some swearing, but it doesn't encourage swearing, and is very little, and in some scenes it's funny. It has great role models and great messages. I would recommend this book. They should make a movie for it
