At Code Switch, we receive a whole bunch of emails and messages from readers and listeners. And many times, folks ask questions that get us buzzing during our editorial discussions.
One Code Switch reader sent us a note seeking book recommendations for a multiracial teen. The emailer described the teen as not very “bookish” but still a good reader.
What books do you recommend that feature race in a way that a teen would find compelling? Nothing preachy or earnest or heavy. Shout us out in the comments, or holler at us on Twitter at @NPRCodeSwitch using #codeswitchbooks.

P.S. If you’re looking for book suggestions in general, our friends over at NPR Books came up with this really neat, lovely, awesome tool that’s essentially a genius book recommender of all the great work from 2013.
