About the FolioI love sharing great books on TikTok as @moongirlreads. And over hundreds(!?) of posts, I’ve noticed a theme: my favorite books focus on strong, diverse WOC navigating a world that doesn’t seem built for them. My picks here are all YA, but there’s a lot of diversity within that genre: from modern day New York, to San Francisco in the ’50s, to a fantasy set in a dystopia known as the Martial Empire, there’s a story here for everyone.
