My sister and I get asked this ALL the time! Why is this a big deal to you?
Don't you just like cool stories?
And our favorite, Why do you go so hard for Diverse Books? Books are books, readers will read the ones that they connect to.
Who cares if the main protagonist is Latino. Or Transgender, Disabled or even all three!
You are what's wrong with the world because all you see are the differences in people!
We get asked these things on a regular basis. And not just from strangers. Close friends and family members add to the list of people that just don't get it!
