Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (11 ):

This cross-cultural teen romance tackles some of the United States' most divisive issues: hijab bans, the rights of the alt-right, and what constitutes religious liberty. While Yes No Maybe So does give teens real insight into the role they might play in a political campaign, readers with more conservative political views might be uncomfortable with or offended by a storyline in which progressive Democrats are given the moral high ground.

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.
