I'm esp looking for bks that center marginalized voices & are intersectional. I don't see enough religious diversity. I’m fascinated by ritual & faith; how these intertwine to create belief. What does belief feel like? What's it like to want to believe, but find you can't? #MSWL

I'm looking for fresh chapter books with a diverse protagonist and possibly some magical realism. #MSWL

My fav CBs have truly dynamic characters and are hysterical. All-time fav: DORY. Really want a diverse CB series. #MSWL
