I get that people, particularly tweens and teens, like to read books that have relatable characters. In fact, some might say that young adults need these books, particularly if the goal is to foster a lifetime love of reading. I think (or perhaps, I hope?) that readers morph into readers that simply want to read stories with protagonists with relatable character traits, where things like gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status, etc. do not matter. In the end, all that's needed is a damn good story.
Thoughts, dreams, aspirations?
