Follower Appreciation Extravaganza (500): Diversity in Novels

I LOVE seeing minorities as major characters in novels.  People of color are finding a place as main characters in more and more novels and I definitely think that is something to celebrate.  AND not all novels featuring people of color are depressing (hooray!).  I really enjoyed some of the books that I had a chance to read and review that spotlighted diverse backgrounds.  Before I was reading books like 32 candles, I read books like Corregidora and Getting Mother's Body.  These are very different reads but all important.  LOVES it!!

So let's do a giveaway!

The Prize:   US: 2 winners may choose  out of Money Can't Buy Love (Review), Corregidora, Kindred, Waiting for Snow in Havana, When I Was Puerto Rican AND the first winner will also get a To Kill a Mockingbird Bag.

International: Will win his/her choice of The Girl in the Garden (Review) or any of the books listed above.

Who can win?  There will be two US winners and one International winner.  That's three winners in all :)
