Rainbowheart Removed several books where the MC is not Latina. Please ensure that any books you add to this list have a Latina female as the main character, not a side character.


message 2: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Adam Silvera, since his MCs are boys. I'm not sure about Iron Cast by Destiny Soria. Can someone who has read it confirm? The only thing I can find is that one of the MCs has heritage from Mozambique (Africa) and Portugal (Europe), not Latin America.


message 3: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Efren Divided. The main character is male, not female. Also removed Hurricane Child. The setting is the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the main character is not Latina.
