Diversity in YA!

Hey everyone!

I'm super excited to tell you all about a new website, founded by YA authors Cindy Pon and Malinda Lo, that focuses on promoting and celebrating the diversity found in YA books. Diversity in YA (or DIYA for short) is all about fiction that explores diversity in race, culture, sexual orientation, and more in middle grade fiction and YA books, and they promote a different book every week.

A group of authors are going on tour in May, so check out diversityinya.com to see which ones and to find out if they're coming to a bookstore in your area! In the meantime, one reader from this website is going to be winning two books of their choice from the following list of books that DIYA is loving right now:

Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle
White Cat
Fury of the Phoenix
Truth with a Capital T
The Demon's Covenant
The Last Summer of the Death Warriors
Level Up
Slice of Cherry
If You Come Softly & Behind You
Akata Witch

Just fill out the form below to enter, and please check out diversityinya.com!
