Diversity in Young Adult books


There's a great blog post on the Booktrust website regarding diversity in Young Adult books. Bali Rai interviews Catherine Johnson, Malorie Blackman and Malaika Rose Stanley. 


It's a really interesting piece and brings up a lot of questions about publishers, readers and writers in today's society and how hard it is to really bring diversity into the Young Adult market. 

I absolutely love Malorie Blackman, whose Noughts and Crosses series is absolutely amazing and is a fantastically different view on the world in terms of race and prejudice.  

Great interview. I'm off to check out the other featured authors.
