After lots of discussion about this topic earlier in 2014, and inspired by the We Need Diverse Books campaign, Kate shares some recent reading recommendations of more diverse YA and MG.

Kate discusses six books in detail:
- Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens (Corgi)
- Two Boys Kissing by David Leviathan (Electric Monkey)
- Heart Shaped Bruise by Tanya Byrne (Headline)
- The Tiffin by Mahtab Narsimhan (Hot Key Books)
- Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley (Mira Ink)
- Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith (Electric Monkey)
There’s also a shout-out for This Book Is Gay by James Dawson, as well as a request for further recommendations.
