Stacked has a sweet resource list of young adult books featuring black girls. “All descriptions are from WorldCat, and I’m absolutely eager to hear more titles. All are YA books featuring black girls front and center and they include fiction and some non-fiction. A couple of these titles also fall into that crossover category, so while they may technically be “adult” reads, they have great appeal to teens. Several of these authors have written more than one title featuring a black girl at the center, so it’s worth checking their other titles, too. Many of these are also on-going series titles. I’ve limited to one per author.”

“Yelp’s content — the technical genre of which is “review,” but which also, often, takes the guise of novel, treatise, elegy, and haiku — has at this point adopted a recognizable editorial sensibility. One that is guided by its authors’ unique ability to blend, in almost equal measure, selfless generosity and ruthless indignation.” Chris Kipiniak performs a dramatic reading of a Yelp! restaurant review.
