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.

What GREAT lists of diverse reads for anyone, period.
#WeNeedDiverseBooks summer reading series! If you liked Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, try Drift by M.K Hutchins because both are high fantasy tales full of intrigue, strong world-building, and action.
Can’t wait to check out Drift!

How I feel after waking up from naps.
Lol. Me too!
LOOK AT THEM ALL!
I would have put TAB in but my internet is terrible up here so I couldn’t be bothered.
Ahhh! So cool. <3
Happy St. Mark’s Eve! Behold the official cover and title of Raven Boys III, which comes out October 28, 2014.
Love this so much!!!
Rightly or wrongly, I assume my subconscious knows the story that I’m trying to tell, so I generally further assume that writer’s block means that I’ve wandered away from that story.
So my solution for writer’s block is to open a new document, name it OUTTAKES. Then I look at my original manuscript and highlight every single bit of novel that I am not thrilled by. Then I cut it and paste it into outtakes, so I can pretend I’ll use it again.
I guess maybe sometimes I use it again.
I had 150,000 words of outtakes for Dream Thieves. It was a novel I really, really wanted to get right.
Ronan plays the Irish pipes — that might be canon, actually. Is that already in Dream Thieves? It might be. He plays them because they are awesome, difficult, and sad.
One of the Lynch brothers plays the concertina. It’s the cute brother.
