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.

The Snark will Bite

Yes, it is a sweet premise, but like many Disney Channel shows, the banter is so quick and snarky it will impact your kid.

Awesome show wished it had a better ending.

DISCLAIMER: SPOILERS First Season: Great! It shows us more about Alexa's Cancer and her and Katie's Cancer 5/5 Second Season: Wished it could be longer, this season is about Alexa breaking up with her boyfriend, and her Sweet Sixteen. Meanwhile, Katie works at a coffee shop to raise money for her to go to London. Third Season: This part gets kind of less intresting but still pretty good Fourth Season: When I started watching I wanted Alexa to ended up with Dylan but she didn't she ended up with some character that came in the third in the third season same for Katie. However, I wouldn't like to show this for kids under 6, it talks about sensitive topics and others. However if you are 7, it would be ok.
