Sorry to be MIA, but it's been one of those crazy, jam-packed weeks! (A good thing, I promise!)
Anyway, thought I'd pop in to share a link. One of my clients, Jennifer Walkup, guest blogged over at OPWT on Diversity in YA. I liked it because not only does she make some valid points, but she also explores past race (which, as we all know, has been brought up in quite a few blogs lately) and into being diverse as a whole.
She makes some excellent points, and I'd love to hear your feedback/thoughts.
**edit: and can I just say that OPWT's blog tags CRACK ME UP!!! "Tagged cover whitewashing, Diversity in YA, I can't wait til her book comes out, I'm so glad nobody asked me to write this post, Jennifer Walkup, Justine Larbalestier, Kathleen Or to the Tizzle, Kathleen Ortiz, Liar, Wow Jenn shared an amazing discussion, YA writing, You hear that editors? buy buy buy!"
