For all of those writers out there who worry about writing diversity, this is how it’s done! Ryan Graudin’s THE WALLED CITY is set in Hong Kong’s Kowloon Walled City and has 3 Asian main characters and it is BRILLIANT! It is not out until November but you can start preordering it. This is the way to write diverse characters. This is the way to write a brilliant story! Mark it on your lists and don’t miss it!!
There are three rules in the Walled City: Run fast. Trust no one. Always carry your knife. Right now, my life depends completely on the first. Run, run, run.
Jin, Mei Yee, and Dai all live in the Walled City, a lawless labyrinth run by crime lords and overrun by street gangs. Teens there traffic drugs or work in brothels—or, like Jin, hide under the radar. But when Dai offers Jin a chance to find her lost sister, Mei Yee, she begins a breathtaking race against the clock to escape the Walled City itself.
A little competition can be healthy, and in the case of DC triplets, Malik, Khalil and Ahmad Jones, sibling rivalry has generated some rather positive outcomes. The brothers, who attend Georgetown Day School in Washington, DC and excel both in academics (they all have a 3.7 GPA) and athletics, have received acceptances from some of the nation’s most prestigious institutions. Currently, the trio has narrowed its decisions to Columbia University and UPenn. Not too shabby, huh?
