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.

Poignant realistic teen girl challenges

Realistic portrait of difficult life of some not-privileged kids. The cast of young teen girls was excellent and totally believable. The situation was very sad but the main character showed strength and resilience, as well as making some poor choices. Social Services were portrayed realistically, as punitive and also helpful. Our adopted 12-year-old girl sobbed.
