With thousands of books published each year, it can be mind-boggling to select a book. Compass Book Ratings’ mission is to provide readers with the ability to target in on the right book for them by age, genre, starred literary review, and especially by content. By providing a standardized rating system and book review, readers, teachers, librarians, and parents can easily evaluate reading options in a searchable database that has hundreds of books. We review middle grade, young adult, and adult books. Users of our site are generally interested in books with lower levels of content in the areas of profanity, violence, and sex.
