Diverse Pairings: Multiple Perspectives

As a library paraprofessional and an avid reader, I’m a fan of the We Need Diverse Books campaign. It can be difficult to get books into the hands of readers if you’re not quite sure how to ‘sell’ the books. I thought I would try out a feature where I pair a book with a companion Diverse* book. If a reader likes one book, they’re sure to enjoy the other one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi and Legend by Marie Lu

Why?

  • Both feature a pair of mismatched characters.
  • Aria and Perry and June and Day get their own voices in the stories.
  • The pairs end up teaming up to reach their goals.

If you have any great pairings, let me know! I’d love to feature them and credit you!

*Diversity may come from the author and/or characters.
