High School Reading List

Behind the Book has always championed efforts to find diverse authors and protagonists that will appeal to students since we serve communities of color. For your enjoyment (and enrichment), we’ve created an epic list of diverse books to reflect the diversity in our city; here’s our list for high school students.

let’s review the ratings *filters the white reviews*

This is why it’s important we flood the theaters when this goes into theaters.

When does this come out? I will search for this movie to watch it.

October 17th.

I’m in there!
