Preeti Chhibber @runwithskizzersRecommendation request! Do people have go-to kid lit that represents South Indians? I'm excited about all the North Indian desi rep we're getting, but I'd like to expand it. Reply w/ any South Indian recs you have for Kid Lit (esp if South Indian American reps). Thx!
This is a #mswl for me, especially in middle grade!
Kosoko Jackson @KosokoJacksonhi, yes, hello,
I'd really like to see, not only more black main characters in YA, but also black characters with black support systems; familial, friend, professional, academic.
Our readers should see themselves succeed, but so should our characters. pic.twitter.com/4zO0iPeNBl
Caitie Flum @caitiefEven when I was applying to schools, this wasn't realistic, and it has gotten even harder. I'd like to see some more reality in this in YA.
So #MSWL for contemp YA w/ seniors making that college decision. Valedictorians apply (and go to!) state schools - they are GREAT schools.
