On Thursday, I had the opportunity to hear Nicola Yoon, National Book Award Finalist, speak about her to Young Adult books Everything, Everything and The Sun is Also A Star. One of the things she talked about that stuck with me the most is when she talked about her involvement with #WeNeedDiverseBooks. When asked about why we need diverse books, she said, "Everyone wants to see themselves as the hero of the story, otherwise you feel erased." LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that!
Do you like it when you can relate the characters in a book?

|Nicola Yoon's 2 books|
If you'd like to check one of her books out, I feel they are best suited for mature 7th graders and 8th graders who like realistic fiction with romance. Click on the pictures below to read descriptions of the books and see if they are available in the library.
Happy reading! ~Mrs. Leffel
