High School Reading List

Back in May, the #weneeddiversebooks campaign lit a fire to fulfill the desperate need for diverse books in children’s literature. Behind the Book has always championed efforts to find diverse authors and protagonists that will appeal to students since we serve communities of color. For your enjoyment (and enrichment), we’ve created an epic list of diverse books to reflect the diversity in our city; here’s our list for high school students.

Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Drown by Junot Diaz

Kindred by Octavia E. Butler

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

The Chaos by Nalo Hopkinson

The Living by Matt De La Peña, a Behind the Book author

This goes right into the “books" and "resources" tags.

I’ve featured quite a few of these books for Fiction Week, and I know that many educators would be interested in a list like this. Thanks for making it.

“the thug life chose me”

Not to mention that’s the most royal fuckin hoodie it’s floral and it has bobby pins in it to KEEP IT ON HER HEAD.

This is art.

The new Expendables movie looks way better than the rest so far.

Hi everyone! I’ve been really busy lately on some projects, and one of those was this storyboard! It’s a short story about 3 kids LARPing, getting into trouble, and the perils of selfish honesty!

I’m selling it on Gumroad right now for only two bucks! Thanks so much for your support!
