Jain Deleted Magic or Madness by Justine Larbalestier (white author).

Also, I realize that what constitutes YA is pretty subjective, but nonetheless I'm surprised to see Warchild by Karin Lowachee and Lagoon by Nnedi Okorafor on the list. Afaik, neither has ever been marketed as YA, and I've read both books and certainly consider them adult literature.
