There is just no way it is going to be as good as the book…and should I really cry that hard in the theater? Probably not.

Today is the start of our new summertime reading series “If you liked…, Read this next…” for diverse books. The #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign is deeply committed to increasing the visibility of the wonderful diverse books that are published. Because these books do not get the marketing and promotion that the blockbuster books get. So we want to do our part in raising the profile of diverse books and bringing them to a larger audience. Help us spread the word! We will have a new “If You LIked” every day of the summer!
The first book in our series is the YA book Akata Witch by Nnedi Okarafor. You really need to read this author who the great Ursula LeGuin said “There’s more vivid imagination in a page of Nnedi Okorafor’s work than in whole volumes of ordinary fantasy epics.” So what are you waiting for?
