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 16+

More mature and not as good as beginning of the series

I found this book much harder to follow and less engaging than Graceling or Bitterblue. It has a lot more sexual themes and more explicit sexual content than the earlier parts of the series. I would not recommend this book to my 13 year old for these reasons, although I do recommend the earlier books in the series for her.

This title has:

Too much sex
age 12+

This title has:

Great role models
