Is It Any Good?
Some Twilight fan sites can be too basic, while others can seem intimidatingly obsessed. But not the Web site NEW MOON THE MOVIE. This is a light and fun site that combines gossip with good-natured debate. New Moon is a clean site that doesn't burst at the seams with content. Instead it's got nice big graphics and super current updates in anticipation of the film's release (including a countdown clock!). Where else are you going to hear about possible Twilight-themed kids' meal toys or the latest Robert Pattinson sighting? Readers hungry for conversation will enjoy the simple and well-mannered chat space that lets readers gush in mass their allegiance to Team Edward or Team Jacob -- or both.
Online interaction: Visitors can chat as "guests" or become members of Chat Roll, the web service that provides chatting capabilities for the New Moon site. Moderators are users selected by the site's administration who have proven themselves especially helpful.

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.
