I believe it should be us, the parents, who decide when and how to address certain "mature" topics to their children, not the author of a fictional children's book. So disappointing that it was "snuck" in to a book with such a young age demographic without any warning. And a bit ironic since much of the plotline was about being sneaky and not telling your parents about certain things.
Actually, I would have gone on and on about everything I liked. But then I was reading through other reviews. And there were a few reviews—four, to be precise—that made me quite angry. They were about
- SPOILER ALERT DON’T READ UNTIL IT SAYS NO MORE SPOILERS -
Charissa Bentley having a crush on Parminder Singh. This is clearly not appropriate material for a children’s book. Dousing your kids in politics isn’t good for them. It was the WRONG ROMANCE. If you’re nodding along to what I wrote, please read the rest of this. And if you want to kill me after reading that...heh relatable.
After reading Stars So Sweet, I think we can all agree that Gladys and Hamilton have...mutual feelings for one another. Obviously, that’s alright to put in a middle grade novel. Girls liking boys and boys liking girls is “normal”. That’s what I read between the lines of these reviews I mentioned. But if you think for a second? Girls that like girls also have crushes on middle school. Many friends of mine are LGBTQ+, and we’re only in sixth grade. So don’t shelter your kids from that enough that they are “very upset” when they read one paragraph about Charissa Bentley’s romance interest.

Now that the venting is out, let’s just agree that this was a terrific book and be on our way. I grant it all four stars—or five, whichever the situation calls for.
I have read all of the books and they are all amazing
I totally recommend it!
