Shortly after I posted my July list, I saw Doret’s July list and Diversity in YA’s July list and realized I just couldn’t let my erroneous list continue. Several titles were set to be released in August back when I added them to my list.
The following is my corrected, updated and amended list. I did some extra research and added nonfiction releases. Do look at the other bloggers lists too, as they also post books which feature teens of color.
Feel free to mention additional July releases in the comments.
