J.A. - Thanks for dropping in

Kate- I loved Boy21, looking forward to reading it again for review. Ari has a review of Cracking the Ice on her blog.

Charlotte I love the cover of Wild Book as soon as I saw it I knew that was David Diaz work.

Thanks for this roundup, Doret! We also did a roundup of diverse MG/YA out this March on Pinterest here: http://pinterest.com/leeandlow/march-new-releases-diverse-mg-ya/. We've got a few more titles that you may want to add (some are on our list because of LGBT themes, but most feature POC).

I added anything we had missing, based on your list.
