I have read these suggestions in the past 10 years or so. Or they have been published in the past 10 years. Even though many of these books may take place in different parts of the U.S. or during different eras, the themes are still something that many young Latinos can relate to.
Looking for something to read, but don't want it to ruin your summer? How about some books that take place during summertime?! Here are some that I have personally read.
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon (Dimple thought she had her summer figured out. Go to web development camp, and win! But now there are so many detours, she's not sure what she wants.)
March is Women's History Month and the Winter Olympics just ended about a week ago. And there were some phenomenal women who participated in the Olympic events. Lindsey Vonn is one the superstars of the Olympics. And did anyone stay up late to watch U.S. Women's Hockey Team win the gold?!
I remember when I graduated from high school and the epic summer after graduation. I will most definitely be aging myself here, but one of the things I remember most is the music my friends and I listened to. My best friend would burn CDs full of our favorites bands and songs. Some of them stayed all summer long, while others were the flavor of the week. One thing for sure is that I think of our adventures driving around the wonderfully hot city.
Back in April, I picked up the book, well an audio eBook actually, Delirium. And when I say picked up, I downloaded it to my phone via the Overdrive app. I know it might be hard to sell this series, as I have heard recently, many teens are not that into dystopian novels. I get it. What I am trying to share with you is the wonderful resource of Overdrive.
