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.

Proceed with caution

Maybe most people won't agree with me but I don't think this is appropriate for children 14+. Maybe some parts aren't appropriate for adults. A great deal of implied sexual behavior (a teenage girl sucking a teenage boy's finger, lots of dialogue about sexual behavior and teenage boys watching a porno).
