Over at Diversity In YA (an awesome site devoted to young adult and middle grade novels that celebrate diversity), they have a summer reading challenge on the go.
It's the Diversify Your Reading Summer Challenge, and I am totally going to play! The mission is: "to read diverse MG and YA books throughout the summer (you choose the books!) and write an essay (at least 500 words) about your experience." Sounds good to me! I already enjoy reading books with LGBT characters and characters of color--I missed out on these books almost entirely while growing up, and I'm making up for lost time now. Who else is in?
