Kim Thx for this list. I've been searching for books with Asian-American protaganists.

Lightfoot Osolage What a wonderful list! I would have never known of a few of these titles if not for this list.

감사함니다

Christine Thank you for creating this list. I added 6 more books.


Radclyffe U-Haul If anyone's looking for Asian Canadian teen fiction, Skim by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki is great.


message 7: by Melinda (new)

Melinda Removed Bound , which takes place in "ancient China" and is not by any means "Asian-American."

Lysmerry This is a great idea for a list, but I think it should also include Canada.

The description explicitly says that this list is for the U.S. though. Maybe someone could start a Asian Canadian list?
