The 2012 Multicultural Book Challenge

Welcome to the 2012 Muti-Cultural Book Challenge hosted by One Page at a Time and Truly Bookish blog sites. The hosts thought it would be great to highlight the fabulous YA books written by muti-cultural/ethnic minorities OR featuring multi-cultural/ethnic minorities as main characters.

The goal of this challenge is to read 12 minority YA books for the year. The books can be newly published or been around for a long time.

Every month, I will be featuring a book or author that meets the criteria. For the month of January, I'll be reviewing Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. In February, both the host of the contest and the Seraphine Blog will be hosting a Native American-themed interview and giveaway. I'm looking forward to that!

There'll be chances to win ebooks and other goodies during the review post weeks which will happen on the first Monday of each month beginning in February. These are truly great books by some very fine authors and I do hope you take time to check into the ones mentioned here.
