I have a student who’s trying to find books for his daughter. She’s 14, African-American (which I mention because her dad really wants her to have more exposure to thoughtful media by/about African-Americans), and into, as her dad put it, “chicky books.”

I feel like I can come up with good suggestions but I am not as familiar with “chick lit” and really not so up to date with YA stuff. Whaddya think?!

Please feel free to share this request far and wide. And thanks!
