Biracial and Multiracial Teen Characters

I don't normally link to Amazon, but this list was too good to change. If AnnainCa ever finds their way to this blog, thank you for such a great list featuring biracial and multiracial teens.

Since it doesn't look like I am just using someone elses hardwork I will add a few titles
Brendan Buckley's Universe and Everything in It by Sundee T. Frazier
Dog Whisperer: The Rescue by Nicholas Edwards - Loved my review
Dread Locks by Neal Shusterman - another title for Sci fi/Fantasy Diversity Roll Call
Jimi & Me by Jaime Adoff
Whale Talk by Chris Crutcher Miss Attitude's review
Emily Goldberg Learns to Salsa by Micol Ostow

I just finished "If You Come Softly" by Jacqueline Woodson and there was a biracial teen, although he was not the main character.

Hey, thanks for linking to my Listmania list!

I just now found this post, although I've read your blog before. If you're interested, I now have 4 lists dedicated to biracial and multiracial protagonists.

Hope this link works:
