#DiverseaThon is a read-a-thon put on by Christina, Monica, Joce, and Whitney in order to spread awareness and discussion about how important it is to have diversity in books. This is something I feel so incredibly passionate about– books saved my life when I was being raised in a very traumatic environment because I saw myself in the characters. Everyone deserves to feel that way and have their voices represented in books!
Chelsea Duvay is a high school student who prides herself on her perfectly manicured feet and musical repertoire, but is also quiet and isolated, opting to spend her free time watching musicals with her father. Not having friends isn’t her choice– it’s just what happened because it seems that the only thing people notice about her is her weight.
