Mia Wenjen’s Jade Luck Club has the most extensive and current bibliography of Young Adult books about the Asian American experience and by Asian American authors that I have come across. I asked Mia if she would compile a summer reading list of Asian American books for middle school students.
Happily, she replied with the following:
I have already put Paul Yee’s Money Boy on my own summer list. In addition to the books Mia mentions, I would add both of Lisa Yee’s Bobby books (Bobby The Brave , Bobby vs Girls ) and Lawrence Yep’s Cockroach Cooties.
Mia describes herself as blogging “obsessively on children’s books and young adult literature at Pragmatic Mom and creative Asian Americans at JadeLuck Club when she’s not chauffering around her three kids.”
Thank you Mia!
