Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This series is eye-opening, riveting, and reveals part an extremely flawed part of the American court system that isn't discussed enough. Children of the Underground is heartbreaking, upsetting, and unfortunately, timely. It's notable that throughout Faye Yager's martyrdom, the series also explores the flaws, internal conflict, and imperfections of the operation. Though a crucial topic, the descriptions of abuse can be heavy, so parents should be prepared to have discussions with their teens while they're watching.
