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


message 3: by Lightfoot (new)

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.


message 6: by PigeonSquid (new)

PigeonSquid 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."


message 8: by Lysmerry (new)

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

Good point, Lysmerry. Technically North America includes the U.S., Canada and Mexico. However, Mexican literature is often not included because in "American" lists due to the languages being different. That's not the case with Canadian literature, which is predominately English.

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