YA author Crystal Maldonado is making her mark on Latinx readers across the world. Crystal’s stories center fat, beautiful, brown girls chasing the love they’ve always deserved but haven’t received–until now.
So, what are the books that are going to help us feel seen and represented, fill our days with wonderful narratives, and teach us a thing or two in 2022? We did the research, and found five books, penned by Latinas, that you’ll definitely want to pick up this new year.
For your next TBR (to be read) book, I want to suggest five great Latina authors you should know about, as well as their must-read 2021 books.
