One of the best things, in my opinion, that you can do in response to the whitewashing problems we’ve seen in YA fiction is by joining this challenge. I am very excited about this challenge and I encourage you to join it. There’s several levels of participation to join at — I’m choosing Level 5, which will challenge me to read 16-25 books that feature people of color or books that are written by people of color.

I won’t be listing my books ahead of time because I’m a grazer — I like to pick and choose my books as I go along.

This isn’t really a challenge in the traditional sense for me — this is a commitment. I am promising myself (and the blogging community) that I have realized the problem and that I’m committed to working towards changing it.

Oh, I’m glad you’re doing this – I can copy some of your book choices! And I agree, this is a commitment rather than a traditional ‘challenge’ for me too. Looking forward to your reviews.
