I'm here today to recommend more diverse/inclusive books that I've enjoyed lately. *jazz hands* Because, psst, you should be reading more of them!
If you've read a lot of inclusive contemporary lately, than you should try...
UNDER A PAINTED SKY by Stacey Lee
The main protagonist is Chinese, and her new friend is black. Plus, it's good to read inclusive historical fiction. This one is set in the Wild West, and there are swoony cowboys. What more could you want?
Or maybe you recently saw/read Paper Towns and you're looking for more road trip books. Well, it's high time you tried...
DON'T FAIL ME NOW by Una LaMarche
Michelle is biracial, and her home life and financial situation are very atypical of YA and, in my opinion, they were portrayed realistically.
Or maybe you're interested in books about mental illnesses. Well then, you should read...
ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES by Jennifer Niven
DON'T TOUCH by Rachel M. Wilson
The former has characters with depression, and the latter tackles OCD.
Maybe you really liked Veronica Mars and want to read about another teen private eye.
SCARLETT UNDERCOVER by Jennifer Latham
Bonus points for a POC protagonist and religious diversity!
I could go on for awhile, but I'll just list some more inclusive/diverse titles below that I think are definitely worth checking out.
Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough
Just Visiting by Dahlia Adler
