Ari makes some great points here. I have definitely noticed lately that the YA genre seems to focus on women, despite the abundance of dystopian, fantasy and sci-fi genres that typically were(are?) often deemed “male genres”.
I hate to admit it, but I have never until now considered the race and profile of all these leading characters. And you know what? I’m pretty sure I shamefully whitewash often while reading. I think it’s easier for me to relate to the character if I picture a white girl, because I am, in fact, a white girl. Which really is no excuse at all, and something I clearly need to work on moving forward with my reading.
Some women collect shoes, others collect purses. I collect books.
