Liz Szabla at Feiwel and Friends has acquired Toya, a YA novel by debut author Randi Pink. Sixteen-year-old Latoya Williams, who is black, attends a mostly white high school in the Bible Belt. In a moment of desperation, she prays for the power to change her race and wakes up white. Publication is scheduled for fall 2016; Marietta B. Zacker at the Nancy Gallt Literary Agency did the deal for North American rights.

 

Why Am I Waiting?

I’m interested to see just how the author will pull this story off. Stories like this don’t come about too often, and since everyone is screaming for diversity, I can’t wait to see how readers take to it. It looks really interesting, and I’m all about POC protagonists. What book are you waiting on this week?

  2. I read the synopsis of this one, and after doing so I was so interested! I stumbled across it on Goodreads for some reason or the other – I can’t remember why exactly. But the premise had me gripped and like you, I wonder how they are gonna pull this off. I even added it to my TBR (which you know involves actually getting up and leaving the room now, lol) so it is definitely one I want to try.

  3. Oh this sounds awesome! This is going to bring another level of diversity. While having a black character is already great, having her wish come true to be white will really highlight things even more in that aspect. I can’t wait to see what you think when you finally get to read it!

  5. That’s an interesting premise but I have to admit to being a little bit worried too. Hopefully, the author is able to handle the material well and this ends up being a fantastic educational read!
