Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey on YouTube.
This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is favorite diverse characters. I’m very passionate about diversity in books, especially YA. So I’m super excited for this week’s post.
All the characters in this graphic novel series are very diverse in race and sexuality.
Kamala is Muslim and though out the series, her culture is incorporated and talked about.
Allison is Asian (Japanese, I think) and not only is she an amazing character, the art under the dust jackets has an Asian model and I think that’s really great.
Lara Jean and her sisters are half Korean and I love how much Jenny Han incorporated their Korean customs and traditions into both books in this series.
Madeline is half Japanese & half African-American. Several times though out the book she describes herself and I love that.
