Biracial Asian Teens in YA 

Ten Things Sloane Hates About Tru Tera Lynn Childs

Mirrors and Windows and Bridges


For the last several years, I've been cultivating a list of YA titles that feature a biracial Asian Main Character and/or Love Interest. Why? Because the two kids to the left (a.k.a. my now-adult kids) essentially gave up on American YA books because they didn't see themselves represented at all. They turned to anime and manga instead to see teens who look like themselves. So, whether you are a biracial Asian yourself (mirrors), want to understand the biracial/bicultural teen experience (windows), or are an adult looking for titles for both of these groups (bridges), please enjoy the list below. 

**Want to buy one of these books? Click on the book, and it will take you to its sale page on Indiebound.org.**
