My YA “Book of Color” Pick of the Day is Hot Girl by debut novelist, Dream Jordan. Bursting on to the publishing scene–geared for the underserved market of teens of color– Jordan tells the story of Kate. She is a down-in-the-dumps teen until she meets a fly-girl named Naleejah who turns her life around. But what seems like a welcome change to her social life, turns into a trip down treachery lane.

Dream Jordan
, a Brooklyn native is a NYU graduate who has made it her personal mission to write for the reluctant readers which often includes teens of color.
