Is It Any Good?

The Harry Potter Alliance is an outstanding outlet for Harry Potter lovers who want to continue Harry's work in doing good in the world. It might seem silly, but there are some great parallels between what Harry, Ron, and Hermione do and how people continue to fight for social justice in the real world. It's a great take on fandom, a way to create a community and use that passion for a greater good.

For kids who identify as "nerds" or don't feel connected to a certain crowd at school, the HPA could be right up their alley. The site isn't limited only to Harry Potter fans but branches out into other fictional heroes from Doctor Who to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It's a great way for kids to turn the fantasy of heroism into real-life heroic actions.

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.
