I have not read any of the above books at the time of posting. This group is simply a source for finding a record of debuts and does not endorse every title included.

In terms of indicating diversity, I can only go by what is mentioned in the book summary or author bio since I haven't read the books yet. If representation is not noted, it could have been overlooked. If something is noted incorrectly, please let me know!

If I've missed a February debut, let me know in the comments and I will add it.

If you guys review any of these debuts feel free to link your review here.

The cover of American Street is gorgeous! I've already pre-ordered The Hate U Give and put a library hold on a few others. February is full of releases I've heard great buzz about.
