High School Reading List
Back in May, the #weneeddiversebooks campaign lit a fire to fulfill the desperate need for diverse books in children’s literature. Behind the Book has always championed efforts to find diverse authors and protagonists that will appeal to students since we serve communities of color. For your enjoyment (and enrichment), we’ve created an epic list of diverse books to reflect the diversity in our city; here’s our list for high school students.

Fan Bingbing is a Chinese actress and while I haven’t seen any of her films yet I’m a fan of her name and amazing style. I feel like the fact that she is an actress comes through in the theatrical outfits she wears—when she attends Paris fashion week wearing a vintage-look Lanvin dress her hair is exaggeratingly-retro like an extra in Hairspray with over-the-top cat eye, but when she opts for a yellow fitted Versace she chooses appropriately bold Karen Walker sunglasses, wears her hair in loose curls and chooses a nude lip. It’s like her outfits are almost costumes and she assumes a new character depending on the designer and design of a gown—a practice I’m wholeheartedly behind. She’s not quite as recognized by the Western street fashion photographers yet as she ought to be, but I’m hoping as she attends more fashion shows and events we’ll be able to spy her amazing style around the web more and more.
I love Fan Bingbing’s drama.
