January’s New Books

Every month we’ll be featuring all the new middle grade and young adult releases that include diversity. (We tried to find them all, but we may have missed a few. If you know of a book we should include, please tell us!)

By “diversity” we mean: (1) main characters or major secondary characters (e.g., a love interest or best friend kind of character) who are of color or are LGBT; or (2) written by a person of color or LGBT author. Unfortunately due to time constraints we are unable to include each book’s summary, but we encourage you to click on the book covers to be taken to Indie Bound, where you can read a description of the book.

  1. I just put Orchards on my on sale now feature. Oh well, I am not taking it down. I like the cover too much. People will just have to live with the early mention and pre order if need be.

  2. Ooh, thanks for the rec! I’ve ordered it for my library system *adds to holds list*

    Girls with swords are pretty much my bread and butter. Graceling is one of my favourite YA books.
