Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Plucky kids, creepy villains, a missing billionaire, his mansion that's now an orphanage, and a sword-wielding superhero make for a wild tale full of plot twists. Winterborne Home for Vengeance and Valor feels like a prequel, with many intriguing characters barely introduced before it's all over, and a breakneck pace that sometimes gets a bit glib. Most readers will probably be having too much fun to quibble about such things, at least till they get to the ending that raises as many questions as it answers.

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.
