Earth boy

Earth Boy

(Ages 10+)

This book has so many themes I’ve been searching for!!!!!

    • A non-incel masculine Asian protagonist who isn’t threatened by competent women, resists toxic masculinity, and leads through hard work and integrity.
    • Touching on the sense of being the ‘only Asian in the room’ (or the only Earth boy in the space station), including common experiences such as the pressure to perform exceptionally to overcome bigotry and xenophobia of classmates and teachers.
    • Opens discussion on how institutions include us as tokens for diversity points (or profits), but don’t put any effort into making the institution inclusive or adjusting the culture or policies so the person being tokenized can actually succeed.
    • The protagonist has a slightly plump sister. Who happens to resemble and be shaped almost exactly like me. I’m not biased or anything, but …
      Hah ha! J/K, oh heck yeah, I’m biased! This is only one of two books where I’ve seen positive representation for my type of short-legged, buxom, boxy Chinese AFAB body. POINTS FOR POSITIVE REPRESENTATION!

Seriously EVERY. SINGLE. PAGE of this was deeply validating, satisfying, and gave me hope.

Student Ambassador: The Missing Dragon

Student Ambassador: The Missing Dragon

(Ages 10+)

Diplomacy, befriending arrogant dictators, learning to read Korean, this book has all kinds of stuff I’ve never found in a kid’s book!

In addition to a Strong Male Lead (and by that a thoughtful and patient embodiment of healthy masculinity), we see the protagonist lead through support and kindness.
